Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award

The Discovery Award is a one-year grant of up to $25,000 for innovative health and biomedical research projects by outstanding new investigators at universities and research institutes in Canada who are within the first three years of their first academic appointment. The intent is to provide seed funding so that applicants are able to gather pilot data to enhance their competitiveness for other sources of funding. We fund at least 6 awards per year. In addition, we partner with other organizations to grant co-funded Discovery Awards

Discovery Awards Include:

  • Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award supported by Dystonia Medical Research Foundation Canada
