McGill Global Health Programs (GHP) is pleased to collaborate with the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity (MI4) to co-sponsor one Seed Fund Grant (SFG) with support from the Steinberg Fund for Interdisciplinary Global Health Research.
The GHP-MI4 Steinberg SFG aims to catalyze innovative and impactful infection or immunity focused global health research at McGill & affiliated hospitals, by providing one seed grant worth up to $50,000 to enable the launch of a new, interdisciplinary, infection or immunity focused global health research project and make it competitive for sustained external funding. The research must be conducted in a low or middle-income country, or in a resource-poor setting within Canada (e.g. with indigenous communities in the Canadian North). Proposals should be forward-thinking and aim to address global health issues that are emerging and will increase in importance over the coming decade.
- Launch of GHP-MI4 Steinberg SFG: October 7, 2020
- SFG application deadline: December 16, 2020, 11:59 PM Eastern Time
- Evaluation period: December 17, 2020, to February 28, 2021
- SFG announcement to applicants: March 1, 2021
