H & S – National New Investigator Award Fall 2015


Heart & Stoke Foundation Canada


The National New Investigator award is a salary award to support new investigators who have demonstrated excellence in their pre- and post- doctoral training and wish to establish their own research laboratory.


At the time of submission, no more than five (5) years may have passed since the date of the first faculty appointment at the Assistant or Clinical Assistant Professor level. This would include Adjunct positions in a research track for which the applicant is eligible to write a Grant-in-Aid (as a Principal Investigator). Must hold a PhD or equivalent degree.

Funding Availability


Indirect Costs


Project Duration

Four years and cannot be renewed for a second term.

Special Notes

A National New Investigator may not be in receipt of another major Personnel award (i.e. from another national funding agency) at the same time as holding a Personnel Award from HSF. Likewise, an awardee may not concurrently hold a Canada Research Chair and a HSF New Investigator award. In addition, an awardee may not hold two HSF Personnel Awards (national and provincial) concurrently. However, an awardee may accept supplemental funding (no greater than 50% of the value of the HSF award), if it is from a local or provincial funding source, providing it is not a HSF Provincial award.


If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.

Must be post-marked/courier-stamped no later than September 14, 2015.
