DEADLINE: GHP-MI4 Steinberg Seed Fund Grant


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.

Key Dates:

  • 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

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg Nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
