The objective of the Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH)/Canadian Sleep Society (CSS) Travel Awards is to recognize the outstanding research contribution made by Canadian students and postdoctoral fellows in the field of sleep research. CSS and CIHR-ICRH will jointly provide funding to students and postdoctoral fellows working in sleep research in Canada to travel to a major scientific sleep meeting (e.g., CSS, APSS, ERS, WSF, WASM, SfN, ATS) to present their research, which must be determined to be relevant to both the CSS and ICRH mandates.

Funding Available:

  • The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $4,000. Of this, CSS will contribute a total of $2,000 to the competition. CSS and CIHR-ICRH will administer their own funds.
  • The maximum amount for a single award is $1,000, including international travel.

Specific Eligibility Requirements:

  • A sponsor report (letter of support) completed by your supervisor or someone from your institution must confirm your enrolment at the Bachelor's level in a medical, biology, neuroscience, psychology, dental or pharmacy degree or your status as a full-time Masters or PhD student or as a post-doctoral fellow at a recognized Canadian academic institution.
  • Please attach confirmation of your current Canadian Sleep Society membership (in good standing) when completing your application. Failure to do so will result in the application being withdrawn from the competition.
  • Previous CSS-ICRH Travel Award winners are not eligible to reapply to this competition.
  • CIHR-ICRH/CSS will provide funding for travel that occurs within 9 months after the application deadline.

The application deadline is Feb. 14, 2018
