UPDATE: CIHR Project Grant, Spring 2017 Competition

May 9, 2017

CIHR has just announced an updated deadline for the CIHR Project Grant competition for spring 2017.  As many of us are well aware, CIHR has gone through significant programmatic reviews and changes which in turn have resulted in delayed announcements and shorter turnaround times for funding applicants. In particular, the submission deadlines for the upcoming Project Grant are more condensed than usual:

  • Registration deadline has been extended until: August 15, 2017
    • Previously: May 30th
  • Application deadline has been extended until: September 15th, 2017
    • Previously: June 13th

As always, be sure to submit your MRA as soon as you can, well in advance of the final June 13th deadline to allow your Chairs/Deans and the central Research Services Office to review and approve your application.

If you plan to submit via your hospital research institute, please check with the relevant administrative staff to see if they are offering editorial support and have internal deadlines of their own.

Please note that decisions for the Fall 2016 Project Grant competition will still be released on May 15, and the additional investment in that competition announced April 13 still stands. In fact, as a result of the decision to delay the Spring 2017 Competition, CIHR will actually be investing an additional $100 million in the fall 2016 competition.
