CIHR Operating Grant – Transitional Operating Grant 2015

The application form for the CIHR Operating Grant Program (OGP) is not yet available but if you are planning to apply you may wish to start considering your application since the Registration deadline has been moved up considerably from past competitions.
The OGP provides operating funds to support research proposals in all areas of health research. If your program of research is in the health area, you may be eligible for funding from CIHR.  SSHRC no longer funds health-related research that is eligible for funding under CIHR.
**This is the last Open Operating Grant competition before the transition to the new Foundation and Project Schemes.

CIHR – Letter of Intent / Registration: January 9, 2015  (Letters of Intent are Mandatory)
Faculty of Education Research Office:
One week prior to the Research Services deadline. (2-3 weeks prior if you wish to have extensive feedback on your application. Contact Karen Kueneman.)
Research Development & Services: February 23, 2015 (Western’s signature process)
CIHR Full Application: March 2, 2015, 2:00 p.m. (for a notice of decision July 2015)

The Operating Grant is flexible, in that there are:

  • No specific requirements in relation to team size or team composition;
  • No specific requirements or restrictions on the specific research activities to be undertaken

Applications: All registrations (Letters of Intent) and applications for the Operating Grant Program must be submitted electronically using ResearchNET.

A ROLA proposal must accompany the Full Application.

NOTE: You must use the Canadian Common CV (CCV).  Applicants are advised to plan for additional time to enter information and review their CV data.
