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, health care, health systems, 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.

*NEW mandatory requirement (as of May 15, 2018)

Because CIHR is committed to ensuring that its programs and peer review processes result in the fair and impartial treatment of all participants, applicants to CIHR programs must complete an Equity and Diversity Questionnaire prior to submitting their next application (N.B. not required at 'Registration' stage). The questionnaire consists of five questions and should take about 5 minutes to complete online. Applicants only need to complete the questionnaire once (their responses will be saved once submitted).
