REALISE External Module Registration Award

The HBI is pleased to support training opportunities for active REALISE program members attending approved workshops and courses external to the REALISE program. In recognition of the tremendous benefits that these programs can provide to our trainees, REALISE will facilitate participation by providing a financial contribution towards the associated tuition costs. Download the application form.

Terms of Reference

HBI REALISE can provide up to a maximum of $500 for an HBI graduate student or postdoctoral fellow who is a member of the REALISE program with a record of participation in REALISE career development programming. These funds will be used exclusively towards paying tuition or registration fees associated with workshops and courses that will benefit the trainee’s career progression.

  • The trainee must be an approved registrant in the REALISE program for at least 6 months, and must be an active participant in REALISE-sponsored career development opportunities.
  • The trainee's supervisor must be a full member of the HBI.
  • Funds cannot be used towards PhD students meeting their course requirements.
  • The course must not cover material under current offer by REALISE.
  • This support can only be awarded once per applicant per year.
  • The award must be used within six months of funding being awarded.
  • Applications will generally not be considered retrospectively.
  • The only eligible expense is tuition or registration fees.
  • Applications will be considered on a first-come first-serve basis until funds for the year are fully distributed.
  • A certificate of completion (or equivalent) is required for expense reimbursement. Receipts for all expenses must be submitted within one month of the completion of training via a UCalgary Expense Claim.

At the end of each training opportunity, the trainee will be expected to complete an exit survey / report that summarizes knowledge gained and benefits of the course. These summaries may be published on the REALISE website.
