Funding Opportunities

NL SUPPORT is proud of our efforts to grow patient-oriented research in our province through a program of direct support for professionals and students.

Health Professional-led Research Funding

The purpose of the Health Professional-led Research Funding is to develop patient-oriented research and evaluation capacity amongst health professionals. We anticipate running two competitions per financial year and up to five projects will be funded per annum. The value of this award is up to $10,000 per project.

Applications for Spring 2024 will open on March 19, 2024.

Graduate Student Funding

A mandate of NL SUPPORT and Quality of Care NL is to foster an atmosphere of learning, capacity development and sustainability within patient-oriented research. Under this mandate, we will endeavor to nurture the next generation of methodologists and researchers, as well as provide career development for the current cohort of researchers and staff. To that end, we will provide support in the form of graduate student fellowships each year.

Applications for Spring 2024 will open on March 19, 2024.

Patient-Oriented Research Development Award

The purpose of the Patient-Oriented Research Development Award is to support the growth of patient-oriented research in health/social research areas where it has traditionally been difficult to grow this movement. These include laboratory-based/basic science research and community/social sector research/program evaluation settings.

Applications for Spring 2024 will open on March 19, 2024.
