PSI Graham Farquharson Knowledge Translation Fellowship
The PSI Graham Farquharson Fellowship is intended to provide salary support for a new investigator who has demonstrated the ability to successfully complete high impact knowledge translation research. The Fellowship funds, dedicated to salary support, must protect at least 50% of the Fellow’s time to conduct such research.
Please refer to the funding guidelines for application process and details.
About Graham Farquharson
Mr. Farquharson joined the PSI Foundation’s Board of Directors in 1996 and served as the Chair of the Finance Committee in 2007. He retired from PSI in 2013, and it is our distinct pleasure to name this prestigious fellowship after him.
A Toronto resident and the President of Strathcona Mineral Services Limited, Mr. Farquharson was inducted into the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame in 2010 for his many accolades stemming from his 50-year career.
He has made substantial financial commitments in support of medical research, including funding the Anna-Lisa Farquharson Chairs in Kidney Cancer at Princess Margaret Hospital and Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto – the first such endeavour in Canadian Kidney Cancer research.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering from the University of Alberta, a Masters of Business Administration from Queen’s University, and is the recipient of an Honorary Doctor of Science degree from the University of New Brunswick.

Applicants must be an M.D. in a Ph.D. or MSc. Program at an Ontario university or in a combined M.D./Ph.D. or MSc. Program at an Ontario university.

Educational Fellowship For Practicing Physicians
This fellowship is directed at physicians in Ontario, particularly those residing outside of the teaching centres, who wish to take a period of training to bring a needed clinical skill or knowledge to the community or to undertake training in research methodology.
The fellowship provides course fees, if any, transportation, room, and board costs. Funds are not provided to replace income lost while undertaking a training program and the program is not designed to assist physicians taking refresher courses.
Applications will be considered for support of physicians who have undertaken training courses that commenced up to three months prior to the time the application is considered.
