Peer Review

Funding Excellence

Funding recipients are chosen according to SHRF’s rigorous peer review process. Committees of active researchers and health professionals use a rating scale of excellence to assess research proposals, answering the following questions:

  • Is it relevant and original?

  • Is it feasible and ethical?

  • Does it adhere to the objectives and priorities of the funding program?

  • Does the researcher or team have the expertise and support to conduct the research?


Peer review for programs where SHRF is matching or partnering with other funding agencies may be done by the other agency, but SHRF requirements will still be met.

Our volunteer reviewers are not only instrumental in evaluating proposals and providing feedback to applicants; they also provide valuable insight to SHRF about procedures, programs, practices and trends in the health research community.
