Resident/Clinical Fellow Trainee Research Grant (RCFTRG)

Resident/Clinical Fellow Trainee Research Grant Program

This funding opportunity is operated by the Department of Pediatrics and funded by the generous support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation through the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute. Residents and clinical fellows can access up to $2,000 (plus an additional $780 as an in-kind contribution for WCHRI Biostat Services, if relevant) to carry out an independent research project. The proposed work must be within the initial stages of development and should be within the applicant's ability to execute independently, within the time available, and under the guidance of the proposed supervisor/mentor. Awardees may hold this grant once per eligible program type.


Applications may be submitted at any time. The turn-around for a grant review is variable depending on reviewers and resources.


Applicants must:
  • currently be enrolled in a residency, subspecialty residency or clinical fellowship program in the Department of Pediatrics;
  • projects must be in the initial stages of development
  • have met with a WCHRI biostatistician for consultation and service quote before submitting applications, if this service is included as part of the application; and,
  • be WCHRI in-training members.
Supervisors must:
  • have an emerging or demonstrated record of research mentorship.
