Research Grants

How to Apply: 

Our grants support and encourage legal writing that is of value to Canadian lawyers, notaries and judges in their day-to-day work in the law and in the administration of justice. Our grants are generally in amounts greater than $5,000 and less than or equal to $10,000.

We provide funds for legal research that falls into three broad categories:
  • 1Research and writing that emphasizes the statement of existing rules of law, which is often called doctrinal research.
  • 2Research that relates to the workings of the legal system.
  • 3Research that relates to developments in fields peripheral to legal doctrine, such as criminology, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and economics, and their relationship to rules of law.

HFSP Research Grant Program

How to Apply: 

HFSP Research Grants support innovative basic research into fundamental biological problems with emphasis placed on novel and interdisciplinary approaches that involve scientific exchanges across national and disciplinary boundaries (see guidelines).

Participation of scientists from disciplines outside the traditional life sciences such as biophysics, chemistry, computational biology, computer science, engineering, mathematics, nanoscience or physics is recommended because such collaborations have opened up new approaches for understanding the complex structures and regulatory networks that characterize living organisms, their evolution and interactions.

Research grants are provided for teams of scientists from different countries who wish to combine their expertise in innovative approaches to questions that could not be answered by individual laboratories. Preliminary results are not required and applicants are expected to develop new lines of research through the research collaboration.

It is understood that such research inherently contains risks and HFSP expects that teams of applicants address the risks and outline mitigation strategies for their research in case of failure and how they intend to achieve their goals.

Applications for applied research, including medical research typically funded by national medical research bodies, will be deemed ineligible (see guidelines).

Two types of Grant are available: Research Grants – Early Career and Research Grants – Program.

Energy Innovation Program – Clean Fuels and Industrial Fuel Switching

How to Apply: 

In its Net Zero by 2050 report released May 2021, the International Energy Agency states that almost 50% of CO2 emissions reductions required to create a net zero economy by 2050 will come from technologies currently at the prototype or demonstration stage, with this share being much higher for heavy industry. In Canada, heavy industry accounted for 77 meagtonnes (Mt)of CO2 equivalent (eq) in 2019, representing 11% of Canada’s total emissions. Funding solutions to reduce emissions in this sector is critical to address hard-to-abate segments of industrial emissions and create pathways for the use of cleaner fuels.

As part of the Government’s efforts to accelerate the development of technologies that can decarbonize industry, this call for proposals under the Energy Innovation Program will target industrial fuel switching and production of clean fuels for use in hard-to-abate sectors, focusing specifically on three technology areas. NRCan will be making available up to $50 M for focus areas 1 and 2 combined, and up to $3 M for focus area 3.

2021 Platform Support Grants

How to Apply: 

Through the Platform Support Grants, Brain Canada continues to fill a critical gap in funding as it pertains to the development, operation, and maintenance of research platforms. Open to investigators working in neuroscience research, this program will support new and/or existing major platforms that are accelerating research, providing access to specialized technology, and creating new data pools. This year, Brain Canada has allocated $15 million dollars to the Platform Support Grants program, to be matched by funding provided by sponsors secured by applicants.

Unique to the Platform Support Grants is the opportunity for organizations, agencies, institutions, and/ or industry partners, and more to join Brain Canada in supporting capacity-building and research development by committing to provide 50% of the total funds requested from a research team. A sponsor may support any number of applications and multiple sponsors may support a single application, but no sponsor can commit less than 20% of the matched funding required for one single application. Historically, research grants awarded through the PSG program have ranged from $138,000 - $6.1 million (including matching funds) across three years.

Interested applicants will be required to first register a team by February 7, 2022 at 16:00 ET

Selected applicants will then be invited to submit a Full Application by April 22, 2022 at 16:00 ET
