October 30 Grant Information Session: MSFHR Scholar Program Competition

As announced earlier this month, the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) has launched a Scholar competition. In order to increase awareness for the competition, and to highlight recent changes to the competition guidelines, an information session will be held on October 30 (see details below).  The session will be led by MSFHR’s Research Programs Team and will consist of a 30 minute PowerPoint presentation with an overview of the changes in guidelines and eligibility criteria followed by an open Q&A session.
The information session is intended primarily for researchers and health professionals who are seeking to launch an independent research career in biomedical, clinical, health services, population health research fields.  

The session will be held on Friday, October 30 at 10:30 a.m. to approximately 11:45 a.m. in the IRMACS Centre, Room 10900.


There is a two stage On-Line Application Process: 

The first stage involves submitting the on-line Letter of Intent (LOI) by November 6, 2015 and receiving confirmation of eligibility to submit a full application.  An SFU Funding Application Signature Sheet will not be required at this stage.

ORS will receive a list of eligible applicants for further followup.

Internal SFU deadlines for full applications, anticipated to be no later than one week before MSFHR's deadline, will be e-mailed to applicants and administrators along with complete instructions by November 13.

Note in regard to full applications: Although the applicant can make his or her application visible to SFU administrators, once an application has been submitted, it is final and can no longer be revised.  For that reason, applicants are cautioned not to press the submit button until asked to do so by ORS.



The Scholar Award provides up to five years of salary support at $90,000 per annum.  The award amount is inclusive of benefits.
