New Investigator Research Grants
New Investigator Research Grants enable early-career researchers to make a meaningful contribution to the fight for children’s health. They are jointly sponsored by SickKids Foundation and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health. Grant recipients may obtain up to three years of support for research in the biomedical, clinical, health systems and services, population and public health sectors.
This program provides support to child health researchers early in their careers so that they can compete with more senior investigators for research grants from other funders. We fund research that has the potential to have a significant impact on child health outcomes.
