BHCRI Funding Opportunities
Funding for awards has been made available from a variety of sources; however, the single largest source is the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation (DMRF). The DMRF Board has stipulated that funds they generate may be used to fund up to half of the total amount awarded to non-Dalhousie affiliated researchers. The New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF) has partnered with BHCRI to support New Brunswick cancer researchers, via matching funds. For other successful applications, researchers should discuss matching funds with their local university or provincial research funding agencies. A confirmation of matching funds will be required before BHCRI funds can be transferred.
Seed Funds and Miscellaneous Funds are designed for rapid turnaround and have no set due date. They will be reviewed by the Research Committee at regularly scheduled committee meetings and therefore will need to be submitted to the BHCRI office at least two weeks before a committee meeting. Please see Research Committee meeting schedule: https://bhcri.ca/committee-meetings
A completed Funding Overlap Declaration must be submitted with all applications.
• Bridge Funds — Bridge funding has been suspended until further notice.
• Matching Funds — Match funding has been suspended until further notice.
• Seed Funds guidelines and application
• Miscellaneous Funds guidelines and application
The New Investigator Awards will be offered once per year in September with a set deadline. A Scientific Review Committee will be appointed to review the grant submissions. Applicants must be within the first five years of initial academic appointment and be a member of BHCRI as either Associate or Scientist. The New Investigator Awards will be for $25,000 per year for two years. As many as three grants per year will be offered with one each to basic, clinical and population researchers, with this last category very broadly defined.
The 2019 competition is now open. The deadline for LOI submission is 4:00pm ADT on Friday, 13 September 2019.Please view the application form and guidelines
