*VISTA Graduate Scholarships Available at York University*

**

The Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA <http://www.yorku.ca/vista>) 
program seeks applications for up to 23 domestic and international 
Graduate Scholarships (Masters and PhD) at York University, Toronto, 
Canada. The topic of research must fall within VISTA’s mandate, which is 
to support fundamental and applied vision research that combines 
biological and computational perspectives and has translational 
potential for health, industry, or other applications.

VISTA is a program funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund 
<http://www.cfref-apogee.gc.ca/home-accueil-eng.aspx> that will enable 
York University, and its partners, to accelerate York’s already 
world-class vision research. VISTA involves five York faculties, seven 
research centers (including the Centre for Vision Research), and over 50 
partners in the international research community and non-academic 
sectors such as healthcare and private industry.

VISTA awardees must be offered a position in a York graduate program in 
a discipline appropriate for the VISTA program (e.g., psychology, 
neuroscience, computer science, engineering, philosophy, film, or a 
medical discipline). Applicants must be sponsored by at least one 
proposed supervisor from this list of VISTA core faculty 
<http://vista.info.yorku.ca/team/core-faculty>.Scholarships will be 
awarded competitively based on the strength of the candidate, the 
strength of the research proposal, and fit with the goals of the VISTA 
program. Up to 23 candidates will be awarded a scholarship of $10,000 
CAD/year in addition to standard York base funding. Masters scholarships 
may be held for up to 2 years. Doctoral scholarships may be held for up 
to 4 years. For complete applications details and procedures, see the 
VISTA website <http://vista.info.yorku.ca/training-scholarships/>.

Closing date for the competition: March 31, 2017

/VISTA welcomes applications from all qualified individuals, including 
individuals within the University’s employment equity categories of 
women, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and 
aboriginal persons, individuals of diverse gender and sexual orientation 
and all groups protected by the Human Rights Code. The VISTA Team is 
committed to equity and diversity across the program, and to a positive 
and supportive environment./
