Health services research
The Canadian Health Services Research Foundation (CHSRF)

will fund applied health services research that will be
useful to the health system managers and/or policy-makers
in the next two to five years. Funding of up to $100,000
annually is available to support programs and projects under
three themes: health human resources; managing continuity;
and nursing leadership, organization, and policy. Funding
is also available for a single program on each of the following
topics: Defining the medicare “basket” and access
for rural and remote communities. Application is initially
through a letter of intent with a submission deadline of
Nov. 5. For further information, see www.chsrf.ca.
Northern Science Award
The Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development
is seeking nominations for the Northern Science Award. The
award consists of a prize of $4,500 and a centenary medal
commemorating the International Polar Year. It may be presented
to an individual or to a group of indigenous people who
have made a significant contribution to meritorious knowledge
and understanding of the Canadian north. (North is defined
as a zone of high latitude in northern Canada, north of
the southern limit of discontinuous permafrost where, because
of the natural environment, people experience distinctive
living conditions.) Further information is available at
The deadline for nominations is Nov. 30.
Student research in the North
Application forms are now available from the Office of Research,
or at www.ainc-inac.gc.ca/nstp/index_e.html,
for Northern Scientific Training Program (NSTP) grants.
NSTP grants are supplementary funds awarded to assist students
in the completion of research projects in the North. The
use of the funds is restricted to travel costs for the student
to and from the field area; student living expenses; freight
costs; and translation costs. Graduate and senior undergraduate
students from any discipline who are Canadian citizens or
permanent residents may apply in conjunction with their
faculty advisor. Completed applications must be submitted
to the Office of Research by Nov. 15.
Health Canada has allocated up to $1 million to support
up to eight research projects in the area of women’s
health indicators. The intent of this program is to improve
the way health is measured in order to inform policy development
and to monitor changes in women’s health status and
outcomes in Canada. Four areas of secondary research will
be supported: socio-cultural roles and responsibilities
and the physical and mental health of women; social exclusion
and women’s health; the environment and women’s
health; and health services and women’s health. Application
is initially through submission of a letter of intent by
deadline Nov. 10. Projects are to be completed within 24
months and the maximum funds per project is $300,000. Detailed
information is available at www.hc-sc.gc.ca/iacb-dgiac/arad-draa/english/rmdd/rfp/rfp016.html.
