Announcement: CIHR delays Project Grant Competition

Today, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) announced that the Project Grant Competition registration that was to close on May 30, 2017 will be delayed until August 15, 2017, with an application deadline of September 15, 2017.

In a statement on the CIHR homepage, Dr. Roderick McInnes, Acting President for CIHR has said in order to mitigate the impact of this delay on the research community, CIHR will financially extend all existing Open Operating and Project Grants scheduled to expire between September 30, 2017 and March 30, 2018 until March 31, 2018. Subsequent competition dates will be determined through the above-mentioned consultation process.
