2022-23 Align Grant #3 Announcement

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

Part of ensuring that our investments have a meaningful local impact involves supporting health research that is aligned and relevant to the diverse communities of Saskatchewan. SHRF is excited to announce this next wave of Align Grant recipients, and to support these interdisciplinary teams as they engage outside of traditional academic settings. - Patrick Odnokon, SHRF CEO

The Align Grant was first established in 2022 with the goal of providing funding to enable:

  • The development and engagement of robust interdisciplinary research teams; and

  • The completion of activities that shape research to align with the context and needs of Saskatchewan.

As part of SHRF's Connections Program, this funding prioritizes knowledge mobilization and alignment activities outside of academic settings.


As the third and final series of Align Grants in 2022-23, the following projects represent interdisciplinary and diverse research that seeks to benefit the many facets of human health. SHRF is proud to fund a total of 18 projects through an investment of $179,403. This call concludes the 2022-23 Align Grant, which supported a total of 34 projects through $329,178 in funding.
