Two new funding opportunities are available. Found at Campus Alberta Neuroscience.

  •  Applications Now Being Accepted for the Spinal Cord Injury Pilot Project Grant Competition

The Alberta Paraplegic Foundation and Campus Alberta Neuroscience are accepting research proposals from collaborative, province-wide basic science and health research teams to provide Pilot Project grants in the area of spinal cord injury (SCI) research.  The purpose of the Pilot Project Grant is to provide limited short-term support of research related to SCI in areas where preliminary data are scant or nonexistent. Research proposals submitted to this program should represent unique or novel ideas with potential to open significant new avenues of research in SCI.

Funded teams will receive project funding from The Alberta Paraplegic Foundation, via the Alberta SCI Research Support Fund and within-Alberta travel support to facilitate collaborative engagement from Campus Alberta Neuroscience. A maximum of four Pilot Projects will be funded at up to $30,000 CAD total (including all direct and indirect costs), over a one-year period.

The deadline for applications is March 20, 2017. For more details on the competition, please view the Request for Proposals. The Application Form can be found here.
