Team Grant : Indigenous Healthy Life Trajectories Initiative Cohort Research Study (I-HeLTI)

Eligibility: 

Eligibility to apply to this funding opportunity is limited to the three (3) CIHR-funded I-HeLTI research teams. It is expected that the three (3) research teams will collectively apply to this funding opportunity, collaborating to leverage the necessary expertise and resources to establish the I-HeLTI Intervention Cohort Research Study, and the I-HeLTI Collaborating Centre. If their application is successful, the three (3) I-HeLTI teams will have their initial baseline research funding renewed for an additional 6 years. This continued baseline funding will support their roles within the overall I-HeLTI cohort collaboration and sustain the I-HeLTI investment through long-term Indigenous community engagement and institutional commitments.

How to Apply: 

The specific objective(s) of this funding opportunity are:

  • To address all of the objectives of this funding opportunity within an Indigenous health research context. That is, the approach to the funding opportunity objectives will need to be conducted by, grounded in, or engaged with First Nations, Inuit or Métis communities, societies or individuals and their wisdom, cultures, experiences or knowledge systems, as expressed in their dynamic forms, past and present.
  • To build on the infrastructure, capacity and partnerships developed by the three previously CIHR-funded I-HeLTI team grants in order to conduct one I-HeLTI Intervention Cohort Research Study and to establish one I-HeLTI Collaborating Centre, including the following four activities: (1) recruiting women, both preconception and during pregnancy, their infants and the fathers; (2) designing an intervention to develop, conduct and evaluate interventions for and with women and men during preconception, pregnancy and, for infants, during the postnatal period to substantially reduce the prevalence of NCDs; (3) conducting evaluative and mechanistic studies that will explain the effect of the selected interventions on outcomes, including epigenetic and economic analyses of interventions; and (4) developing governance processes, including research data management practices.
  • To develop cross-community collaborations that will provide an interdisciplinary learning platform and training environment for early career researchers and trainees.
  • To generate evidence that will guide policy and other decision making, and identify opportunities for future research and interventions as part of a longer-term strategy of NCD prevention.
  • To decrease the incidence of risk factors for later-life NCDs by targeting early exposures and early development, particularly related to women’s and men’s health preconception, during pregnancy, early life and in early childhood.
  • To establish a platform for sustained investments through long-term Indigenous community engagement and institutional commitments.

Insight Development Grants

How to Apply: 

Insight Development Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program.

Insight Development Grants support research in its initial stages. The grants enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches and/or ideas. Funding is provided for short-term research development projects of up to two years that are proposed by individuals or teams.

Insight Development Grants foster research in its early stages, but are not intended to support large-scale initiatives. Long-term support for research is offered through SSHRC’s Insight Grants.

Proposed projects can involve, but are not limited to, the following types of research activities:

  • case studies
  • pilot initiatives
  • critical analyses of existing research

Projects can also involve national and international research collaboration, and the exploration of new ways of producing, structuring and mobilizing knowledge within and across disciplines and sectors.

Funding is available for two distinct categories of scholars:

  • Emerging scholars who will develop new research questions and/or approaches. Such projects may build on and further the applicant’s (or team’s) graduate work and/or represent a continuation of their overall research trajectory.
  • Established scholars who will explore new research questions and/or approaches that are distinct from the applicant’s previous/ongoing research. Research projects should be clearly delimited and in the early stages of the research process. Insight Development Grant funding is not intended to support ongoing research for established scholars.

SSHRC welcomes applications involving Indigenous research, as well as those involving research-creation.
