Current funding opportunities

  • Planning and Dissemination Grants – Institute/Initiative Community Support (Summer 2022 Competition)

    One of the mechanisms for Institutes and Initiatives to achieve their mandates is by offering planning and/or dissemination grants within the Institute/Initiative Community Support (ICS) Program. The Planning and Dissemination Grants are intended to provide support for planning and/or dissemination activities (either virtual or in-person) consistent with the mandate of CIHR and relevant to CIHR Institutes and Initiatives.

    CIHR is committed to promoting the inclusion and advancement of groups underrepresented in science as one of the means to enhance excellence in research, training and knowledge translation. Proposals must outline measures for how organizers of planning and dissemination events and activities will meaningfully engage members of groups underrepresented in science.
