Health, social sciences and research partnerships grant opportunities coming up

This month our updated External Funding Opportunities webpage features more than a dozen funding opportunities in health, media, IT, science, technology, engineering and social sciences and humanities. Of particular interest to health faculty will be the New Investigator Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). This grant (deadline December 1) is a salary award that helps new researchers develop skills in health and health policy research.

For social sciences and humanities researchers, Partnerships Development Grants (deadline November 30) fosters research collaborations and knowledge transfer between academic and community partners in social sciences and humanities (SSH) disciplines. In addition, there are February 2015 competitions for the Insight Development Grants program, including a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the full Partnerships Grant program. Connections Grants (deadline February 1) funds research events, outreach and workshops in SSH fields.

Of course, there are many opportunities for industry-driven research in science, media, technology and engineering. For more information on funding programs and research at Fanshawe College, contact the Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI) at research@fanshawec.ca.
