Operating Grant : Cannabis Research in Longitudinal studies
Within its objective under the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Act, CIHR is charged with addressing emerging health challenges. CIHR is also positioned, as Canada's federal funding agency for health research, to provide focused public funding for emerging health challenges. Against this backdrop, and recognizing a need for independent research on cannabis health issues, CIHR is launching a funding opportunity for research projects.
This current funding opportunity is comprised of two components: Existing Longitudinal Studies and a New Longitudinal Study on Cannabis Use in Veterans.
- The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $3,750,000, enough to fund approximately 7 grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate.
- Of this $3,750,000:
- $1,000,000 is available to fund 2 applications relevant to the Human Development, Child and Youth Health funding pool. The maximum amount per grant is $100,000 per year for up to 5 years for a total of $500,000, per grant.
- $2,000,000 is available to fund 4 applications relevant to the Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction funding pool. The maximum amount per grant is $100,000 per year for up to 5 years for a total of $500,000, per grant.
