External Award: Indigenous Gender and Wellness Travel Award

May 07, 2018

Do you have an idea or potential project related to gender that could improve wellness in your community?

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) will be launching Travel Awards for the Idea Fair and Learning Circle event on “Indigenous Gender and Wellness”. This will provide an opportunity for Indigenous Peoples and allies to meet each other, share their ideas and goals about Indigenous gender and wellness and to work with supporters who can help them turn their idea into a fundable project.

Applicants do not need prior research experience to be eligible. You can apply to present your ideas or apply as a supporting individual to help others develop their ideas.

The Travel Award request for applications will be available on the Institute of Gender and Health website in June 2018. We will follow-up with a link and additional details as soon as it is live.

Anticipated Timeline:

  • Launch of program: June 2018
  • Application deadline: November 2018
  • Notice of decision: January 2019
  • Funding Start date: April 2019
  • Idea Fair and Learning Circle Event: June 2019
