Foundation Grant 2016-2017 Competition

Some adjustments were recently made to the Foundation Grant review process to ensure a fairer process for all applicants, most specifically early career investigators and female applicants. For example, in order to ensure early career investigators are treated fairly, CIHR commits to awarding them with a minimum of 15% of grants, as planned; and ensuring that approximately 50% of their applications move from Stage 1 to Stage 2. Also, regardless of career stage, the proportion of female applicants moving forward from Stage 1 to Stage 2 will equal the proportion of female applicants to the competition. Read more about the updates to the review process.

  • Stage 1 Peer Review Underway – The first stage of the review process for the competition is now underway. We wish to thank the close to 300 reviewers and Competition Chairs who are volunteering their time over the coming weeks to evaluate the work of their peers. The results of stage 1 are expected to be shared with applicants on February 2, 2017. Read more…
