Atlantic Canada Petroleum Institute
The Atlantic Canada Petroleum Institute (ACPI) is calling for either preliminary
or full research proposals that address four research themes: hydrocarbon
evaluation; environmental impacts and effects; operations and technologies;
and policy. ACPIs funding contribution of selected proposals will
be in the range of $20,000 to $50,000 per year. Proposals are reviewed
by the ACPI advisory committees who provide advice and guidance to ACPI
on the selection of funded research projects. Preliminary proposals do
not need to address all of the proposal criteria and may be submitted
in letter format in a maximum of five pages. Full proposals should address
all of the proposal criteria in a maximum of 15 pages. Please submit full
proposals via e-mail in the standard ACPI format (www.acpi.ca)
The deadline date for proposals is Jan. 21, 2002. For further information,

The Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) and the Association of Hemophilia
Clinic Directors of Canada (AHCDC), in collaboration with Novo Nordisk,
have established a new fellowship in Congenital and Acquired Bleeding
Disorders. This program will provide fellows in hematology or other relevant
fields the opportunity to obtain additional clinical or research skills
necessary to improve the care and lives of patients with hemophilia and
other inherited bleeding disorders. The value of this fellowship is $70,000
for one year and it is tax deductible. Applications must be received on
or before Jan. 31, 2002. For further information, please contact Joyce

SSHRCs Federalism and Federations
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) is pleased
to announce its fourth competition under the Federalism and Federations
Program and its expansion to include a new component, New Patterns of
Interactions, Interests and Community. This new component will fund research
that examines patterns of interactions among citizens and groups and their
impact on identities, civic involvement and social cohesion. During the
period of 2001-03, SSHRC and Intergovernmental Affairs will invest more
than $2.5 million in the Federalism and Federations Program to support
students, researchers and institutions through four different but complementary,
awards mechanisms: doctoral fellowships awards; postdoctoral fellowships
supplements; aid to research conferences and research grants. For the
present time, the New Patterns of Interactions, Interests and Community
component of the program will support activities only through the research
grants and aid to research conferences award mechanisms. The deadline
for receipt of applications is Feb. 1, 2002. For further information,
please contact Luc Lebrun (613) 947-9652

response options available to address undesired changes. Nominations of
social and natural scientists are sought. Although the deadline for receipt
of author nominations has passed, nominations for reviewers will be accepted
through Aug. 1, 2002. Information on the nomination requirements and on
the roles of the experts and reviewers in the MA process is available
The Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation
The Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation of Canada is offering two research
funding opportunities: Major Grants and Graduate Student Awards. The major
grants competition valued at $35,000 will support biomedical research
into intellectual impairment especially as it affects children and the
causes and cure for Alzheimers Disease. The focus of the research
should be into the causes of the disease as opposed to active treatment
or palliative care. The graduate student awards are valued at $10,000
each for research by masters or doctoral candidates into the causes,
cure and treatment of intellectual impairment. The deadline date for both
programs is April 30, 2002. For further information, visit
or telephone 905-522-0033.
