Are you a faculty member at the BCCDC/BCPHL with a new research question that you’d like to pilot to see if it can be developed further or are you looking to help fund a workshop or for travel funding? If so, you’re in luck; the BCCDC Foundation Open Awards Program (OAP) competition for Fall 2018 will begin on Friday, Aug 17th.

The objective of the OAP is to help enhance the research enterprise at BCCDC and to increase the opportunities for success at major peer review organizations such as CIHR. We offer three types of funding: i) money for blue sky, discovery, or pilot grants; ii) workshop and team-building grants , to bring colleagues together either for the exchange and discussion of new research and/or its translation into new policy/practice or to help in generation of research teams; iii) research travel awards for investigators to learn new techniques, exchange research information and prepare material for publication.

The deadline for applications is Monday, October 1st 2018 at 4:30pm PST and is open only to faculty members of BCCDC/BCPHL. If you are faculty, please check your inboxes on Friday, Aug 17th for an email containing Application Forms and Terms of Reference. If you don’t receive one, or just would like more info, email : foundation@bccdc.ca
