The purpose of the Allied Health Kidney Scholarship award is to encourage students with a demonstrated interest in nephrology and / or organ donation to pursue education at the Masters level, and in turn to promote and enhance the development of allied health investigators in the nephrology field in Canada.
The Kidney Foundation offers a limited number of fellowships that fund full-time academic study and preparation for research at the doctoral level. The objective of this program is to promote and enhance the development of allied health investigators in Canada in the field of nephrology and / or organ donation. Fellowships are awarded for amounts up to $31,000/year and can be held in Canada or abroad. Note that for programs outside Canada the applicant must provide a statement indicating their intention to return to Canada.
The purpose of the Allied Health Kidney Research Grant is to encourage allied health professionals to pursue research relevant to the areas of nephrology and organ donation, including clinical, health services, social, cultural, environmental and population health research. To be eligible for this grant the principal applicant must be an allied health professional.
The grant can be awarded for up to two years. The project must have a clearly demonstrated relevance and outcome relevant to our mission, and the research must be carried out in Canada.
We recommend that researchers with biomedical or basic projects apply to the Kidney Health Research Grants Competition. Post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to apply to the KRESCENT program.
The Junior Investigator Grant is for emergent leaders in HIV inquiry who are preparing to establish a HIV program of data, evidence-sharing, and impact. Junior Investigators must be committed to collaboration with other OHTN-funded leaders and stakeholders. Projects should be relevant to the areas of rapid learning and improvement. Their program of data, evidence-sharing, and impact should aim to fill knowledge gaps in HIV prevention and care or evaluate interventions to improve programs and services.
The HIV Endgame Program supports people and projects (including innovative, discovery-based and investigator-driven-game-changing projects) that have the potential to:
- Meet the needs of populations in Ontario most affected by HIV.
- Drive changes in policy and practice across the HIV prevention, engagement, and care cascade.
- Lead to more integrated health and social services.
- Identify effective ways to address the social determinants that have a negative impact on the health of communities most affected by HIV.
- Contribute to a rapid learning HIV health and social system.
The Breaking New Ground Grant funds innovative, high-reward projects that will break new ground and build evidence and programs to dramatically improve the prevention, treatment, and care cascade in Ontario. This funding stream supports the piloting, evaluation, or scale up of HIV interventions. The project should address a clear care or quality gap in the current HIV care cascade, or health and social system and work to achieve impact at the front lines of HIV prevention and care.
CIMVHR is administering a Call for Proposals (CFP) to identify a researcher/research team that can successfully undertake a literature review examining the body of literature on volunteering among Canadian Armed Forces Veterans and military members. It will aim to identify volunteering preferences, patterns, and key impacts on Veteran well-being, particularly to improve the military-to- civilian transition.
