J.P. Bickell Foundation General Charities Grant Application Process
Grants are made to assist biomedical scientists of various departments and faculties in Ontario universities, hospitals and scientific institutions concerned with medical research. These grants may be distributed among medical research institutes and universities in Ontario.
The online application may be submitted from any medically oriented university faculty. These may be within the health sciences department of a university or any faculty of that university.
One application may be submitted by a qualified institution by April 30th for the annual competition.
The Foundation will use the following criteria in assessing applications:
- Projects must have scientific merit and be primarily medical in nature.
- New researchers seeking start up grants receive priority.
- New, innovative projects receive priority.
- Applications submitted should most suitably fit the institutions' requirements and the Foundation's criteria.
Maximum Project Value
Grants are usually within the $25,000 to $80,000 range.
Grants are not made to cover deficits or to supplement a project grant from another granting agency (except for essential equipment). Supplemental grants may only be made for equipment essential to the described project where main source funding for equipment is unobtainable. For equipment costing more than $10,000 indicate the use, extent of use, availability of similar equipment and the current operating support.
Only one application may be submitted by the University of Guelph to the Foundation. If multiple applications are received, internal adjudication will be required.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Application: Applicant must complete and submit application through the on-line granting portal.
See the Application process and information under 'Medical research grants'.
