The CIMVHR TPL Research Initiative encourages researchers from relevant fields to submit project proposals to compete for access to funding to accelerate research and improve the health and well-being of Canadian military, Veterans, and their families. This opportunity has been made possible through the support of True Patriot Love and the True Patriot Love Fund. The True Patriot Love Fund was established in January 2015 for the purposes of supporting research to discover new treatments, establish evidence-based programs, and increase access to programs and treatments dedicated to advancing the health and well-being of Canadian military members, Veterans, and their families.
The initiative will support priority research areas including but not limited to:
The goals of this initiative are to:
Proposals must be led by at least one Principal Investigator who is an academic researcher affiliated with a Canadian CIMVHR University Member. Proposals from international affiliates can only be considered if done in collaboration with a Canadian CIMVHR University Member. Consideration will be given to proposals that identify additional collaborators, including other academic institutions / research hospitals, as well as government representation.
CIMVHR is expecting to award a select number of seed funding projects (approximately $5,000 – $25,000) as well as a select number of larger projects (approximately $50,000 - $60,000). Contributions for this initiative are subject to volume of applications received and availability of funding from the sponsor.
Final proposals must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before June 29, 2018 for consideration and evaluation.
CIMVHR is available to discuss the feasibility of your proposed research prior to completing and submitting the proposal.
