Jointly funded by the Office of the Vice-President (Research) and the researcher's Faculty, Western's Strategic Support for CIHR Success program offers three funding opportunities identfied as Seed, Bridge and Accelerator grants. These grants are targeted at researchers who are not currently holding external CIHR funding or are preparing to submit to a larger CIHR grant. The intent of these three grants is to offer critical, one-time funding to support an individual investigator’s research activities for the subsequent development of strong, competitive submissions to external, peer-reviewed research sponsors.
The merit of each proposal will be assessed on innovation, impact, deliverables (both long- and short-term), proposed methodology, HQP training plan and proposed budget. Successful applicants are expected to develop and submit competitive research proposals to a CIHR competition within two years of the award’s start date.
