CIHR Project Grant
The Project Grant program is designed to catpure ideas with the greatest potential for important advances in fundamental or applied health-related knowledge, the health care system, and/or health outcomes by supporting projects with a specific purpose and a defined endpoint. The best ideas may stem from new, incremental, innovative, and/or high-risk lines of inquiry or knowledge translation approaches.
Institute-specific Priority Announcements (PAs) have been added to the Spring 2018 Project Grant competition. PAs are additional sources of potential funding for highly ranked applications that were not funded through the Project Grant competition. For further information about this mechanism, review the PA Funding Opportunity Details page and the Frequently Asked Questions.
- Applicants may submit a maximum of two (2) Project Grant applications in the role of Nominated Prinicipal Investigator (NPA).
- Applicants who are resubmitting an unsuccesful application may provide a response (up to 2 pages) to previous reviewer's comments. Applicants who upload a "response to previous reviews" are required to include all the reviews being addressed. Your response to reviews and the previous reviews must be uploaded as a single PDF attachment. Reviewers are not required to read your response if you choose not to include all the previous reviews being addressed.
