NCD Research Grants for Graduate Students

The GNCDA NCD Research Grants are designed to support graduate students living in or interested in working with resource-limited communities, who wish to conduct a research project on noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in their community or in underserved populations elsewhere. 

The funding provided for this competitive grant is CAD$3,000. Applicants need to submit a scientific project which can be accomplished in one (1) year. The proposal should demonstrate how this research will add to current evidence on NCD control, which includes healthcare access and delivery for people living with NCDs. The proposal should be feasible given the funds provided, justified by its potential impact in the community and demonstrate clear and realistic outcome measures with an effective dissemination plan.

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.
