Grants of up to $15,000 to Canada academic department of medicine rheumatology divisions for capacity building activities. Funding is intended for programs, activities, and related events to support rheumatology research training and increase the number of academic rheumatologists.

The Arthritis Society has long-standing relationships with the Rheumatology divisions across Canada and was originally involved in advocating for their formation. This funding opportunity recognizes the critical role of the divisions in improving the lives of those living with arthritis and the importance of the Arthritis Society’s collaboration to engage and support people living with arthritis.

This funding opportunity aligns with one of the Arthritis Society’s primary areas of focus to build and support a pipeline of strong researchers:

  • Proposal objectives must support capacity building programs, activities and/or related events (i.e. training days, scientific conferences, etc.) with an aim to increase the number of academic rheumatologists in Canada and/or to support research training in rheumatology.
  • Applicants will be required to clearly articulate how their application fits this funding mechanism. Applicants that fail to meet the requirement will not be considered for funding.

Maximum funds considered for such a proposal will be $15,000 multiplied by the number of divisions named as partners by the respective Division Directors applying as co-PIs with a maximum value of $150,000. Please note that the Arthritis Society may reduce the requested amounts to eliminate ineligible costs and/or support a maximum number of meritorious proposals.
