We have received the information regarding the next round for the Ontario Early Research Awards.  A reminder that this funding program is dedicated to early-career researchers who:

  • have started their independent academic research career on or after January 1, 2015; and
  • have completed their first Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, Medical Doctor or terminal degree on or after January 1, 2010.

I invite you to consult the program guidelines carefully to determine eligibility and submission process.

The application deadline is June 11th, 2021, however the Faculty of Medicine internal deadline is June 4th, 2021.  If you will be submitting your application through an affiliated research institute, I invite you to contact their research office in order to obtain relevant information regarding internal deadlines.

The University is organizing virtual information sessions in April (dates TBD) that are open to all.  We will provide you with information regarding these information sessions as it becomes available.  If you are interested in applying this year, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can ensure you receive all relevant information in a timely manner.
