OVERVIEW

As an integral element of its mandate, CAHR works to “promote education and the development of new researchers”.  As part of this effort, over the last several years CAHR has offered funding support to young researchers aligned with its four designated themes of health research: basic science; clinical science; epidemiology & public health; and social science.  This targeted support for young researchers works to provide recognition and funding to academic researchers early in their career as well as provide a reliable supply of highly skilled and qualified researchers.

In partnership with CIHR, CAHR currently funds 12 PhD and 4 Master’s students in research institutions across Canada. This commitment represents an annual investment of nearly $500,000. To ensure the long-term health of the organization, CAHR has put in place a moratorium on offering new studentships. This moratorium will be reviewed in the coming year and a decision on offering a new round of funding opportunities will be made at that time. Please follow the CAHR website for more information.

Supporting HIV Research

CAHR will consider supporting small initiatives that align with its mandate to: promote excellence in HIV research; foster collaboration among HIV research communities; or promote education and the development of new researchers. There are no established deadlines for funding submissions: it is recommended however that requests be submitted three months prior to the activity/event in order to ensure that there is adequate time for CAHR to consider the request. Although all relevant applications will be considered, submissions should demonstrate that they fall outside the realm of traditional funding opportunities offered by other organizations. Please note that CAHR will not support the operating costs of research projects.
