CIHR Partnership Award Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the CIHR Partnership Award, a partnership must:
  • have a connection to CIHR

    Example: CIHR funded researchers are involved in the partnership, CIHR Institute Advisory Board members are involved in the partnership, or the new partnership is a result of previous networking activities with CIHR.

  • be formalized by a partnership agreement or similar document
  • have had a positive impact on the health of Canadians and/or the global community
  • be a partnership – the actual projects funded are not eligible
  • have a Canadian organization as part of the partnership

In addition, please note the following:

  • Self-nominations will be accepted.
  • If a nominated partnership includes CIHR, only the non-CIHR partners will be recognized for the purposes of this award.
  • For-profit organizations and federal government departments or agencies may be nominated but cannot receive the monetary grant associated with the award.
  • Partnerships are not defined solely on financial grounds. They may include collaborations sharing intellectual, monetary or in-kind resources among organizations.
