Salary Awards

A salary award is a competitive, peer reviewed award that is paid as salary to a faculty member. Examples include CIHR New Investigator and MSFHR Scholar Awards. Salary award applications in the Faculty of Medicine must be reviewed by the Faculty of Medicine Research Office prior to submission. General inquiries regarding Faculty of Medicine review can be directed to Juzer Kakal, Strategic Programs Officer.

Examples include funding opportunities offered by CFI and BCKDF.
