WE-Spark Health Institute is now accepting applications to advance health research in Windsor-Essex. The deadline to submit letters of intent is April 1 at 5 p.m.
Two grant streams are being awarded:
- Igniting Discovery Grants provide seed funding to stimulate the development of early-stage, novel, and innovative health research and education projects in Windsor-Essex.
- Incentive Grants support projects that have been unsuccessful in securing other funding because of steep competition or insufficient funds. These grants help researchers improve their prospects for future external funding.
“WE-Spark is focused on increasing competitiveness in major granting competitions and on building an academic healthcare culture in our region,” said executive director Lisa Porter. “Our grants programs ensure there are dedicated grant opportunities to support local researchers at all stages of their career.
