Faculty of Education Assoc Dean’s Office: 1 week prior to agency deadline (2-3 weeks if you wish feedback on your application – submit to Karen Kueneman)

OMHF: September 16, 2011

Value: Up to $75,000 per year for up to 2 years for Type A Research Project Grants

Description: The Foundation will support research which deals with any of the biological, psychological or social factors which either foster mental health or lead to mental disorder. The Foundation aims to improve knowledge about the prevention of mental disorder, and the rational and efficient diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of the mentally ill. The Foundation will accept applications for projects dealing with any period of the life span, any of the factors thought to promote mental health or to cause mental disorder, and from any of the relevant scientific specialties. The Foundation has a particular interest in studies which address mental health problems of importance in Ontario.

Note: Fellowships and Studentships are also available from the Foundation with a deadline of Oct 28/11.

The Foundation anticipates that competition for both grant and fellowships awards this year will be especially intense. The amount of funds available for awards is somewhat reduced due to a decrease in funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and reduced return on the Foundation’s investments.

Full Applications are to be processed through Research Development Services for institutional signatures, and are to be accompanied by a completed ROLA application.
