As you may have heard, SHRF programs are undergoing a strategic refresh. We’re excited to continue to respond to our changing environment and make improvements to better serve the health research community.
As part of this, we continue to look for ways to streamline our funding opportunities to reduce administrative workload internally and externally, while ensuring our funding has strong impact and return on investment. To this end, we have recently made the decision to suspend SHRF’s Research Fellowship funding opportunity. In other words, there will not be a Research Fellowship application deadline in March 2020. Current recipients are not affected by this decision and all present commitments will be honoured.
We remain committed to strengthening research capacity and competitiveness; increasing investment in research and innovation; and aligning research with stakeholder needs, while striving for operational excellence. At this time, we encourage those eligible to apply for Tri-Agency fellowship competitions this fall. (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC)
