International, health and other research funding opportunities available
Fall/early winter are prime times for multiple competitions from the country's largest research funding agencies. Our just-updated External Funding Opportunities webpage features more than 20 opportunities in health, media, IT, science, technology, engineering and social sciences and humanities. For multi-disciplinary international projects, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is accepting applications for its small grants program (deadline September 23). Of particular interest to health faculty is the New Investigator Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). This grant (deadline December 1) helps new researchers develop skills in health and health policy research. For arts and business researchers, the Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC) research grants program (deadlines November 10, March 16, 2015), teams non-profit/industry associations with academics for research that furthers growth in Ontario's cultural media industries – interactive digital media, music, book and magazine publishing, and film and television. Of course, there continues to be many funding opportunities for industry-driven research in science, technology and engineering. For more information on these and other opportunities – as well as on getting involved in research at Fanshawe in general -- contact the Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
