This opportunity is open to perinatal and child health research learners receiving a salary award from a research organization (e.g. governmental or non-profit foundation) that is similar in scope to those granted by ENRICH via a local, provincial or national competition (e.g. SickKids CSTP, FRQS, Alberta Innovates, Michael Smith, CIHR, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada Fellowship, etc.). Candidates should contact their ENRICH Regional Leader to determine their eligibility for a specific award prior to applying. Current ENRICH awardees who receive a salary award during their ENRICH tenure will be automatically switched to this pathway and their ENRICH stipend payments will stop.
Location of Tenure: The award must be held at a Canadian institution. Please speak to the Regional Leader who is geographically the closest to you institution. I list can be found HERE. Regional Leaders are not eligible to apply.
Talk to your Regional Leader 1st: Sixteen Canadian Pediatric Academic Centres have a Regional Leader. Please contact the Regional Leader closest to your academic institution. Regional Leaders should be contacted well in advance (45-60 days) prior to applying, to ensure you meet all criteria, before submitting your application.
Any interruption in a candidate’s clinical and/or research training will be considered in determining eligibility and should be addressed within the CIHR Academic Common CV.
Doctoral Awards: Applicants must have at minimum 2 active years remaining in their doctoral studies from the ENRICH funding start date, which is April 1st of each year.
New Investigator Awards: Candidates should be within 5 years of their first faculty appointment. Active Regional Leaders are ineligible to apply.
Citizenship: This program is open to Canadians and permanent residents of Canada.
Applicants may apply at each level of study (doctoral, postdoctoral, new investigator), with success limited to once per phase of training.
