Institute Community Support (ICS) Program 2013-14The ICS Program is designed to foster community development by providing grants and awards to individuals and organizations for the purposes of:
- Aiding research and knowledge translation activities where the circumstances fall outside of CIHR's current suite of funding programs.
- Supporting individuals and organizations goals are consistent with CIHR and its Institutes’ vision, mandate and strategic directions.
The ICS Program is not intended to support the direct cost of research (e.g., pilot projects, feasibility studies or operating grants), principal and co-investigator salaries or research equipment.
Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH) ICS Program
Under the framework of the ICS Program, ICRH supports activities in four areas:
- The ICRH Top Publication Award for Young Investigator recognizes the excellence of research being done in Canada by graduate students (MA, MSc, and PhD) and postdoctoral fellows in the areas relevant to ICRH's mandate.
- The ICRH Travel Awards: Skill Development program supports Doctoral and Postdoctoral fellows to attend a meeting/conference/workshop that will enable the acquisition of specialized skills or research experience related to the Institute's mandate.
For those seeking workshop and symposium support, please refer to the Planning Grants and Dissemination Events Grants funding opportunities in the CIHR Funding Opportunities Database.
Please note that the Canadian Sleep Society (CSS)/Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH) Travel Awards will be administered through ResearchNet.

The ICRH Top Publication Award for Young Investigator and the ICRH Travel Awards: Skills Development will continue to follow the current "paper-based" application process.
