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.
