The Justice Emmett Hall Memorial Foundation Student Essay Competition

Deadline: March 31, 2015  11:59:00 pm

Justice Emmett Hall Memorial Foundation

In 2008, the Justice Emmett Hall Memorial Foundation launched its annual student essay competition. The intent is to foster Canadian health economics and health policy research among undergraduate and graduate students. The competition was publicized in French and English through undergraduate and graduate programs in economics, health policy, health administration, community and public health and applied health research programs (including CIHR/CHRSF funded regional training centres) across Canada, CAHSPR, and other local applied health research networks. Over 150 essays have been submitted since the launch of this competition across 3 categories. Essays were reviewed and scored independently by two of the three member panel of judges to avoid potential conflicts of interest – so that double blind protocols were maintained as much as possible.
