The Brain Canada Foundation is pleased to launch the 2020 Future Leaders in Canadian Brain Research Grants Program. This program aims to be transformative at a time when it is well recognized that there is a significant funding gap to support and retain our brightest early-career investigators, who are well positioned to make major contributions to Canadian brain research.
Brain Canada is committed to excellence through equity, and we encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply to our funding opportunities. The Future Leaders competitions are open to all new investigators, conducting research in the field of neuroscience (any discipline). For the 2020 Future Leaders competition, due to the impact of COVID-19, we will accept applications from researchers who are within 6 years of starting their first independent research by the Full Application submission.
