The objective of the New Investigator Salary Award program is to provide outstanding new investigators with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their independence in initiating and conducting health research through provision of a contribution to their salary.

This funding opportunity to support New Investigators in Maternal, Reproductive, Child and Youth Health is a collaboration between seven CIHR institutes. The goal of the program is to build research capacity in maternal, reproductive, child and youth health by funding operating grants to new investigators. The program will fund research across the four pillars (biomedical, clinical, health systems services, and population health) that has the potential to have a significant impact on maternal, reproductive, child and youth health outcomes according to the mandates of the participating CIHR institutes. Ultimately, the program aims to strengthen Canada's capacity and knowledge to respond to challenges and needs by providing important early career development support to researchers in these fields.

Matching funds must be 100% cash contributions; cash equivalent matching contributions are not eligible. Start-up funds provided to an applicant by their host institution are eligible as matching contributions if some or all of those funds will be received during the term of the new investigator grant and can be committed to the project. These funds must be committed by the funding start date. Any portion of start-up funding already received and/or committed to another research project at the time of application submission is not eligible. The details need to be provided in the applicant?s letter of support.
