*** Announcing the 2016/17 ARCC Seed Grant Competition ***

ARCC is pleased to announce the launch of our 2016/17 Seed Grant competition.

The purpose of the ARCC Seed Grant program is to provide initial ‘start-up’ funding for new or existing researchers to conduct research. The proposed research is to be in an area that is relevant to ARCC, specifically demonstrating alignment with one of the core ARCC Program Areas (Health Technology Assessment; Health Systems, Services, and Policy; Societal Values and Public Engagement; and Survivorship)

Examples of studies that can be funded through this funding opportunity include studies that collect pilot data, studies involving analysis of administrative data, and literature reviews. Upon completion of the Seed Grant project, the research team should be able to demonstrate support for a larger funding application to external granting agencies by, for example: providing preliminary data to justify the need for further research, showing a foundation on which a larger project can be built, and producing deliverables related to a project plan.

Term: 12 months, Start early 2017

Value: up to $30,000 CAD

Application Deadline: October 14th, 2016

Eligibility: The Principal Investigator must be an ARCC member in good standing who is not currently receiving other ARCC funds related to the current project. The proposed project must not be funded by other sources, i.e. this is not a program to be used to top-up other grants. It is expected that the proposed budget for the project will be enough to complete the project without the requirement of other funds to make the project feasible.

Those who do not meet the above criteria may apply as co-investigators or collaborators along with a PI who meets the criteria.
