This year's deadline to apply online is December 1, 2013 

We suggest interested applicants begin with:

Interested students should check  CIHR's 2013-2014 Doctoral Research Competition for eligiblity and application process information. Note that mid October is high traffic time for ResearchNet; we encourage applicants to begin and submit their application early.

Our office will sign the form, scan and email it to the applicant for direct upload to researchnet.

Q: Can I update my CIHR Doctoral Research Award Application after the Deadline?

A: The only updates permitted after the submission of an application are notices of acceptance of publications, which will only be accepted until November 1, 2013. CIHR requires a publisher e-mail confirmation sent to the team responsible for the Doctoral Research Awards ( 

*Updating your CCV or ResearchNet Application will not update the application that CIHR has received.
