Announcements

CIHR Project Grant 2017 Fall Competition Update

Previously, CIHR has announced that the registration deadline of their Fall 2017 Project Grant Competition has been moved to May 30, 2017. However, the agency has decided to further delay it to August 15, 2017. All the same, the full application deadline remains due on September 15, 2017.

To help improve the competition, the following changes have been made for that of the Fall 2017 Project Grants:

  1. The grant applications will be received by face-to-face panels, with no online or other prior evaluations
  2. Applicants will be asked to choose the panel most relevant to their research
  3. Reviewers will be recruited for a single panel
  4. The Project Grant application form has changed only slightly
  5. All health-related applications, including multidisciplinary applications, are welcome

You may find the full announcement here.
