2024/25 Call for Applicants

How to Apply: 

Summary of the 2SLGBTQ+ Health Hub
Funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR), our 2SLGBTQ+ Health Hub tackles a
major training and capacity gap in intersectional and community-informed 2SLGBTQ+ health and
community interventions, including interventions for Indigenous, Black, and other People of Color
queer communities. Our innovative 2SLGBTQ+ Hub, which fosters opportunities for asynchronous and
synchronous learning and skill development, provides a suite of multi-modal training, engagement, and
mentoring opportunities. Our 2SLGBTQ+ Hub includes focused training related to the intersectional,
social, cultural, and structural determinants of health, including interventions that address: a) research
training, practice and evaluation in racialized and Indigenous 2SLGBTQ+ health inequities and
strengths; b) moving research evidence to policy and practice; and c) supporting non-profit and other
sectors working to better 2SLGBTQ+ health in Canada. This Call for Applications (2024-25) will form the
third annual cohort of Trainees for the 2SLGBTQ+ Health Hub. This year we expect to fund at least 20
Trainees. For information, we received over 100 applications last cycle and funded 25 trainees (25%
success level). We plan to offer three additional rounds of trainee applications in subsequent years.
