Western Research has announced the Spring 2021 competitions for the Western Strategic Support (WSS) for CIHR Success and Western Strategic Support (WSS) for NSERC Success bridge funding opportunities are now open for applications.

Jointly supported by the Office of the Vice-President (Research) and the researcher’s faculty or school, the WSS for CIHR Success and WSS for NSERC Success Bridge Grant programs are targeted to established researchers who have recently been funded by CIHR or NSERC, but no longer hold CIHR or NSERC funding.

Amount: up to $25,000

Matching Funds: This opportunity requires a 1:1 match by your faculty. Please consult with your ADR.

Deadlines:
Faculty Research Office: 1 week prior to Western Research deadline. (If you wish to have feedback on your application allow at least two weeks – contact Karen Kueneman)
Western Research – ROLA: May 24, 2021
Western Research:  May 31 (funding start date July 1, 2021)

Eligibility: To be eligible to apply for this opportunity, Western researchers must have been unsuccessful in a recent external CIHR or NSERC competition (e.g., NSERC Discovery Grant Fall 2020 intake, or CIHR Project Grant 2020 intake). The purpose of this competitive funding is to address specific critiques in the most recent grant submission and increase the likelihood of success for a future application.
