IG Institute Community Support (ICS) Program 2014-15

The ICS Program is designed to foster community development by providing grants and awards to individuals and organizations for the purposes of:
  • Aiding research and knowledge translation activities where the circumstances fall outside of CIHR's current suite of funding programs.
  • Supporting individuals and organizations whose goals are consistent with CIHR and its Institutes' vision, mandate and strategic directions.

The ICS Program is not intended to support the direct cost of research (e.g., pilot projects, feasibility studies or operating grants), principal investigator and co-investigator salaries, or research equipment.

Institute of Genetics (IG) ICS Program

IG has developed four funding programs under the framework of the ICS Program:

The IG contribution to the amount available for this program is subject to availability of funds voted annually to CIHR by parliamentary appropriations, and the conditions that may be attached to them. The total amount available for the 2014-15 launch of the IG ISC Program is up to $213,500 distributed among the funding opportunities listed above.

The funds available and allowable costs for each program, along with the program description, application information, review process, and evaluation criteria will be outlined in the funding opportunity once launched. For reference, please visit the 2013-14 IG ICS Program page to access the previous year’s funding opportunities and decisions.
