Summary document highlights new funding programs

As announced last month, MSFHR is developing an expanded suite of funding programs that will build on our established support for BC health researchers.

Six new programs in various stages of development will meet specific funding needs identified through stakeholder consultation.

To increase awareness of these programs, we have created a summary document that is available for download. This document outlines the purpose and general objectives of each program, the expected frequency of award competitions and, where available, proposed award terms and amounts.
