Senior Research Fellowships are open to experienced investigators who have a strong record of publication and success in obtaining competitive grant funding; applicants for this award must at the time of application be a minimum of nine years beyond the most recent professional research qualification. Applicants for the Senior Research Fellowship must be members of the institution's full-time staff. These awards are subject to external review. External reviews may be shared between the Research Committee and the Fellowships Committee. The purpose of these awards is to enable the investigator to secure time for research that would not otherwise be available.

Application forms and guidelines for all of the Foundation's competitions are available online and can be downloaded for you to complete.

Application Details:

The award will cover the costs to the institution of providing a substitute who will take over part of the Fellow's teaching, clinical or administrative duties. The institution must make arrangements for the substitution, and the application form should outline a draft plan for how the substitution will be implemented. The institution should make clear what duties will be taken over and what arrangements are proposed to provide a satisfactory alternative to the Fellow. The amount of time released to do research may vary but in no instance will the Foundation support a full-time substitution. When the applicant seeks relief from clinical duties, the award can be used to cover the income lost by a reduction in the number of OHIP-funded clinical services provided by the Fellow in order to undertake the proposed research. The institution and the applicant must provide documentation for the reduction of OHIP-funded services. The applicant must show that the resources required to carry out the proposed research will be available (e.g., computer time, external grant support, laboratory facilities, access to clients). Each applicant must make clear how his or her research opportunities and productivity will be increased if the award is made.

A prospective applicant who requires assistance to complete an application should contact the Grants Officer at the Foundation. If you are not sure which category represents the best fit for you, we strongly urge you to call the Foundation before you complete the application. Please use the Foundation's checklist for the relevant category to verify that your application is complete. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all required documents reach the Foundation by the deadlines. We will not contact applicants to pursue missing information.


NOTE: Letters of Intent and Full Applications are to be processed through Research Development Services for institutional signatures, and are to be accompanied by a completed RDAF form (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean signatures). Requests for Institutional signatures should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline.
