Field of Interest Develop Grants

Sponsor: Vancouver Foundation

Develop grants are short-term grants to help project teams explore complex social issues and to develop viable projects that might address these issues through social innovation. Project teams will have already begun working on this idea and need further support to move the idea forward to become a viable project plan.

Value: The grant provides a maximum of $10,000 for up to one year.

Currently two Fields of Interest are available, each with their own deadlines. Please contact Heather Frost for ORE review, and submit applications for signature at least one week before the sponsor deadline.
Environment and Animal Welfare (April 13)
Health and Social Development (April 28)

No more than 50% of the budget for a project will be funded by the grant, due to funding limitations.
Vancouver Foundation considers both cash contributions and in-kind donations of services or goods for incurred expenses as valid matching funds. In most cases, Vancouver Foundation does not expect to be the sole external funder connected to the project, nor the largest source of funding.

MSFHR Health Policy Fellowship

Sponsor: Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research

The MSFHR Health Policy Fellowship is a salary award for post-doctoral fellows involved in health research who are interested in preparing for careers in a variety of health research and research user roles. Fellows undertake short-term (six to 12 months) policy assignments via placements within the BC Ministry of Health (MoH) or at one of the province’s health authorities. These placements may be separate from or complementary to a fellow’s current academic research.

Value: The fellowship provides up to one year of salary support at $45,000 per annum, prorated as required depending on the length of the policy assignment. A one-time allowance of up to $5,000 is available to help defray the costs of relocation, and, if permitted by the policy assignment supervisor, to defray costs for attendance at science or health policy conferences or meetings.
