Pathway Grant

To address the gap between the Faculty of Medicine’s Project Grant proposals and CIHR’s limited available funding envelope, the OVDRI has launched  a  Pathway Grant for the Fall 2020 Project Grant competition. This funding program functions as an internal CIHR bridge grant for top-rated Project Grant proposals from on-campus Faculty of Medicine applicants:

  • 3 grants per Project competition (Spring and Fall)
  • $100,000 for 1 year, w/potential 1-year no-cost extension
  • Top 3 unfunded proposals, by percentile rank within review committee, will receive Pathway Grants

Terms & Conditions:

To be eligible for a Pathway Grant – you must be enrolled and in good standing with the Faculty of Medicine's College of Internal Scientific Reviewers at the time of the prior Project Grant competition. To be in good standing, you must provide the scientific review for a proposal when asked by the College within the prescribed timelines.

Expense eligibility follows the Tri-Council policy on financial management.
