Heart and Stroke Foundation
The Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF), Alberta Foundation, has launched a new Alberta research initiative: Seed Grants. Applications must be received by HSF no later than 16:00 (MST) on March 14, 2014 (University of Alberta deadline March 10, 2014). Funding decisions will be confirmed by August, 2014.
This initiative will continue to build Alberta’s research capacity in partnership with universities, health research funding organizations, donors and supporters. It is envisioned that this funding opportunity 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 initiative and identify potential areas of enhancement for the next application cycle.
