Description & Eligibility: These bridge grant programs are targeted to established researchers at Western who have recently been funded by CIHR or NSERC, but no longer hold CIHR or NSERC funding. In order to be eligible to apply for this opportunity, researchers must have been unsuccessful in a recent external CIHR or NSERC competition (e.g, NSERC Discovery Grant Fall 2021 intake, or CIHR Project Grant 2021 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.
