  • Cancer Research Training Program (CRTP) Awards

Twice each year the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute holds a funding competition as part of its Cancer Research Training Program (CRTP). The CRTP has a curriculum that provides training and funding to graduate students, medical residents, postdoctoral fellows and clinical research fellows involved in cancer research at recognized institutions in Atlantic Canada.  A limited number of traineeship awards will be offered to outstanding applicants with an interest in cancer research. Supervisors must be Senior Scientists, Scientists or Associate Members of BHCRI to apply.

Funding for these awards has been made available from a variety of sources; however, significant support is received from The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) and 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.

The fall CRTP competition is now closed. Thank you to those who applied. Please view the fall Intent to Apply form (due one month prior to the application date to provide notification of a forthcoming award application and assists BHCRI in ensuring appropriate expertise on the Scientific Review Panels. It does not determine eligibility), CRTP Application and Checklist. Funding will begin on January 1, 2020. The spring competition will be announced in early January with a 2 March 2020 deadline.

Please note: An Intent to Apply form must be received by the deadline (31 January 2020) in order to apply for an award. CRTP Applications received without an Intent to Apply form will not be reviewed.
