Grant Writing

In this module you will learn about funding and grant writing. Specifically, it will help you learn about the Canadian Institute of Health Research, or the CIHR, Canada’s largest national funding organization for health research, comprised of 13 different institutes that supports over 14 000 researchers across our country. We will approach the CIHR from the prospective of those doing Community-Based Research in HIV/AIDS and this module will help you answer question like why should you apply for CIHR Funding? How to submit your project to the right funding opportunity? And what are the elements of the successful grant application?
