“The focus of this funding opportunity is to support Development Grants to bring together Indigenous Peoples/Communities/Organizations and other members of the research team, including researchers, knowledge-users and/or partners, to undertake initial planning and proposal development in preparation of an anticipated future CIHR full NEIHR Network grant funding opportunity. Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Holders are encouraged to play a lead role on the research team (e.g., Nominated Principal Knowledge User, co-investigator, etc.).”
“The Development Grants will provide support for proposal preparation activities, community personnel support, and travel support to attend gatherings of Indigenous communities, researchers, knowledge users, stakeholders, and/or partners. The expected development activities include a preliminary review of the literature, and other information sources, along with a local and/or regional assessment to determine readiness, priority areas of interest and capacity within the community to develop a full NEIHR application to CIHR.”
