CIHR Project Grant - Spring 2022
The Project Grant program is designed to capture ideas with the greatest potential for important advances in fundamental or applied health-related knowledge, health care, health systems, and/or health outcomes by supporting projects of research proposed and conducted by individual researchers or groups of researchers in all areas of health. The best ideas may stem from new, incremental, innovative, and/or high-risk lines of inquiry or knowledge translation approaches.
The total amount available for the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Project Grant Competitions is $650M.
- Within the investment allocated to each Project Grant competition, there will be a funding envelope of:
- $16.25M dedicated to large grants.
- $14.95M (4.6%) dedicated to supporting applications with an Indigenous health research focus.
- A portion of the competition budget will also be reserved to ensure that the proportion of grants funded is at least equal to the proportion of applications submitted by early career researchers (ECRs), female applicants and for applicants submitting applications written in French.
- Funding is augmented by Priority Announcements (PAs) that award grants in specific research areas.
For an application to be eligible:
The Nominated Principal Applicant must be:
an independent researcher or a knowledge user affiliated with a Canadian postsecondary institution and/or its affiliated institutions (including hospitals, research institutes and other non-profit organizations with a mandate for health research and/or knowledge translation) at the time of funding.
- if the Nominated Principal Applicant is a knowledge user, there must be at least one Principal Applicant who is an independent researcher
an individual affiliated with an Indigenous non-governmental organization in Canada with a research and/or knowledge translation mandate.
an Indigenous non-governmental organization in Canada with a research and/or knowledge translation mandate.
The Nominated Principal Applicant must have their substantive role in Canada for the duration of the requested grant term.
Co-Applicants can be one of the following (inclusion of one or more is optional):
An individual or an organization cannot submit more than two Project Grant applications per competition as a Nominated Principal Applicant. If the Nominated Principal Applicant submits more than two applications, CIHR will automatically withdraw the last application(s) submitted based on time-stamp of submission.
