Western Strategic Support for CIHR Success Program
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 identified as Seed and Accelerator (Fall competition), and Bridge grants (Spring competition). These grants are targeted at researchers who are either not currently holding external CIHR funding, or are preparing to submit to a larger CIHR grant. The intent of these 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 by the Medical & Health Science Review Board (MHSRB) 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. Note: Indirect costs are not supported by this program.
