The QBMA has constituted a charitable trust, known as the QBMA Research and Education Fund. Its main objectives were to:

  1. Fund projects to promote and contribute to public education and understanding of the medical sciences;
  2. Fund projects to enhance the quality of public, medical or social services provided to disadvantaged persons
  3. Fund grants for Black students from deprived economic or cultural backgrounds to pursue studies in the medical sciences; and
  4.  Provide grants to Black students who have demonstrated leadership, past or potential academic achievements, community or extra-curricular involvement, allowing them to pursue studies in the medical sciences.

Every year, the Quebec Black Medical Association awards scholarships to deserving individuals. We welcome your application!

Thank you QBMA!

It's a great and wonderful way to help those who are in need. As we all know, the cost of books can be very expensive. This is my way of saying thank you to the QBMA; I am grateful for the help they provided Tiffany in an needful time. Thank you very much once again. Keep up the good work!
