Fellowships, Studentships and Research Project Grants
Notice: Faculty members who are planning to apply for funding are encouraged to login to the My Research Application (MRA) on-line system well in advance of the submission deadline to ensure that there are no problems with your login credentials. The system utilizes your UTORid credentials. The information in the on-line form will be automatically routed to the appropriate internal approvers for review and endorsement. If you encounter problems, please consult the My Research - Application User Guide for additional information or contact the RAISE help desk (416-946-5000, RAISE@utoronto.ca).
The Ontario Mental Health Foundation has a number of different research funding opportunities coming up.
As a note any application which requires U of T central sign-off will need a completed MRA Application approved in advance of these deadlines.
Research Project Grants
Type A: Research Project Grants (2 years)
Applicants may request funds for up to two years. The grant period will be determined by the Foundation and specified in the letters of notification. Even if the intent is to continue a line of work funded by the Foundation, applications for further support beyond the period of notification will be treated as new applications.
Individuals enrolled in a predoctoral training program are not eligible to apply for a Type A grant.
Type B: Research Project Grants (up to 4 years)
Principal investigators who have been funded by the Foundation for at least four consecutive years in a particular line of research at the time of application, and who can show the need to continue that line of research may apply for support for up to four additional years, through a type B grant.
