The George Mines Travelling Fellowship will provide recognition and funding to outstanding Canadian arrhythmia specialists early in their careers, and provide a reliable supply of future Canadian leaders in this field. The Fellowship will support training abroad for Canadian Arrhythmia Fellows, with the intent of acquiring advanced academic arrhythmia clinical, research and/or educational skills. A total of $60,000 CND will be awarded for each Fellowship.

- Candidates will be eligible regardless of whether or not they hold advanced degrees in research or education.
- Clinical fellowships without a strong academic focus are not eligible.
- Preference will be given to fellows who have an offer of employment in a Canadian academic arrhythmia centre.
- A call for applications will go out to all CHRS members each year.
- Applications must be received by March 1st.
