SPOR 2020 Seed Grant Competition

The SPOR Evidence Alliance Seed Grant aims to encourage a culture of learning, innovation, and advancement of science in the areas of knowledge synthesis, guideline development, knowledge translation, and patient-oriented research by funding methods projects at the conceptual stage.

Only projects studying methodological advancements of guideline development in a patient-oriented research setting will be considered; guideline projects themselves are not eligible for inclusion. Successful projects must have a strong focus on patient-oriented research and include stakeholder engagement in the conduct of the work.

NOTE: Priority will be given to proposals that aim to engage and improve health outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations.


Applicants wishing to apply for the seed grant must be:

  • doctoral student, post-doctoral fellow or an early career investigator (i.e., full-time, independent researcher for a period of 0 to 5 years) at a Canadian institution, and
  • member of the Alliance (prospective applicants are required to complete member registration prior to applying)
