Heart and Stroke Foundation
The Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF), Alberta Foundation has launched two new Alberta research initiatives:
- New Investigator Awards: Applications must be received by HSF no later than 16:00 (MST) on January 10, 2014.
- Seed Grants: Applications must be received by HSF no later than 16:00 (MST) on March 14, 2014.
Funding decisions will be confirmed by August, 2014. These two initiatives will be implemented via open competitions.
These initiatives will continue to build Alberta’s research capacity in partnership with universities, health research funding organizations, donors and supporters. It is envisioned that these new funding opportunities will enable success in national peer reviewed grants, thereby infusing funding to the province and increasing our capacity to create impact on the HSF mission.
With a view to continuous learning, HSF will evaluate participation and success of the new initiatives and identify potential areas of enhancement for the next application cycle. Please contact Kakali Majumdar, Manager, Research at firstname.lastname@example.org or (403) 781-7136 if you have any questions.
