New this year
A bequest from Ramesh and Pilar Bhatia has created the David and Ruth Hopper and Ramesh and Pilar Bhatia Canada Fund, which will offer a new David and Ruth Hopper and Ramesh and Pilar Bhatia Canada Research Fellowship to a top female candidate in Canada identified through the IDRA call. Candidates applying to the IDRA call will automatically be considered for the fellowship, which will be of the same value and have the same parameters as the IDRAs.
