Grant Information

Overview

The Pryde Family Travel Grant aids students enrolled in medical or graduate programs in Canada.

This grant was established in honour of the Pryde family and friends, and the friends and family of Sean Delaney, who have hosted The Sean Delaney Golf Memorial Classic since 2007, the year that Sean passed away from a severe allergic reaction. Since this time, more than $5.2 million has been raised for Food Allergy Canada, in support of food allergy research and education programs.
Number of travel grants awarded
Up to two travel grants will be awarded, with a maximum value of $500 each.

Recipient selection
Eligible applicants will be entered into a lottery, from which two recipients will be drawn.

  • Post-secondary student who is enrolled in a medical or graduate studies program in Canada

In addition, you must be attending an academic program/event related to food allergies within the next 12 months, such as a conference, workshop, semester abroad, or clinical placement program (i.e. this is not for tuition). This travel grant must be used to offset the costs of attending that program/event and funds must be used within 12 months of issue.
