Ralph McGinn Postdoctoral Fellowship
This fellowship award is designed to foster the development of occupational health and safety and work disability research in B.C. and across Canada. The award was established to commemorate the tremendous contributions of Ralph McGinn, a lifelong advocate and leader in the field of occupational health and safety, and former chair of the WorkSafeBC Board of Directors.

Awards are $50,000 annually for two years, with the option to renew for a third year upon successful reapplication. Awards will be provided based on the quality of the proposed research, relevance to occupational health and safety and our research priorities, prior research contributions, and the postdoctoral training environment.
