Deadline extended for Indigenous COVID-19 rapid research competition

CIHR is deeply concerned about the impacts of recent events on the well-being of First Nations, Inuit, Métis and urban Indigenous communities.

We acknowledge that these last few weeks have been challenging and, as a result, there are those who may need additional time to consider applying to upcoming competitions.

Accordingly, we will extend the registration deadline for the Operating Grant: Indigenous COVID-19 Rapid Research competition by three weeks, from November 9 to a new deadline of November 30.

As a result, we will also be extending the application deadline for this competition and will share this new date with you next week.

We are also assessing other on-going competitions and will communicate any changes to the timelines or program design as soon as possible.

We understand that some may also be working on applications to other funding opportunities (that are not exclusively focused on Indigenous health research), and we invite you to reach out to the CIHR Contact Centre at if you would like to request an extension.
