COVID-19 Impact on ECRs:
CIHR is temporarily adjusting the period of eligibility for an ECR. All those who held ECR status as of March 1, 2020, or who secured their first academic appointment after this date, will have their status extended by one year.
CIHR will closely monitor the pandemic and its impact on ECRs overall and on specific groups with the intent that further interventions may be warranted.
The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $1,350,000, enough to fund approximately three grants.
