Application Forms and Registrations
Once possible sources of funding have been identified, general information, registration instructions (where applicable) and/or application forms are available on-line. Whenever possible, we encourage investigators to visit the websites of funding agencies and foundations to obtain the most current information directly from the source.
Several sponsors such as CIHR and NSERC require applicants to register and obtain a PIN before submitting their application. Information on the application process including obtaining electronic or paper application forms and how to register can be found on the sponsor's webpage.
The following are direct links to the application webpages for CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC, Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada/Ontario, and Canada Cancer Society. Links to other agencies for forms and registration (where necessary) may be obtained through the University's Research Services Office (RSO) Common Research Funding Database.
