The Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI), in partnership with the BC Women ‘s Hospital + Health Centre Foundation, is pleased to announce a Catalyst Grant competition for the advancement of knowledge in women’s health. A total of three awards will be awarded at $25,000 each. These Pilot Grants are an open competition with respect to funding a project in women’s health. However, priority will be given to themes identified within the WHRI and to projects that include Indigenous Groups. Awards are open to BC researchers at a university or research hospital setting, but candidates must be a member of the WHRI. Eligible researchers include post-doctoral fellows, research associates, clinician scientists and professors.

New emerging teams, dedicated to women’s health, and investigators new to studying women’s health are encouraged to apply. As these funds are considered Catalyst Grants, the expectation is that these awards will provide pilot data to be used for future funding from provincial or federal sources. However, these funds cannot be used to subsidize an already-funded project.
