Junior Investigator Grant Panel Travel Award

Deadline dates

Submission date: rolling (1 month prior to panel meeting date)
Results announcement: Prior to panel meeting date for chosen competition

Application guides can be found on the EGrAMS documentation for applicants page.

The Canadian Cancer Society is pleased to offer a special initiative to allow junior investigators in cancer research to gain knowledge and understanding of the Canadian Cancer Society peer-review process. During the year, through different funding opportunities, applications spanning all disciplines of cancer research are evaluated and ranked for funding.

Selected investigators from across Canada will be provided funds to reimburse travel costs to Toronto to observe a grant panel meeting. This unique opportunity will provide junior faculty members with an “inside look” at how research grants are reviewed in order to help structure their own grant proposals in future.

Eligible applicants are investigators in cancer research at the end of their Post-doctoral fellowship or within the first few years of their academic appointment. Priority will be given to those who have yet to be awarded a grant from a Canadian granting agency.

Applications for these limited funds will be accepted via EGrAMS and require Department or Institution Head sign-off prior to submission.
