The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation invites applications for:
collaboration with the Canadian Shoulder and Elbow Society, the Canadian
Orthopaedic Foundation is introducing a new research awards program; the CSES
Research Grant. This award was established to support and encourage orthopaedic
surgeons to conduct collaborative shoulder or elbow research. The total number
of awards each year will be variable, based on available funding. Individual
awards are in the amount of $20,000.
Community Innovation Award (new submission deadlines for 2020)
Innovation Award celebrates community-based surgeons and research studies
dedicated to improving patient care or musculoskeletal health in their
community. There are many Canadian orthopaedic surgeons interested in research
working in the community. These community surgeons are not academics, do not
have a research history, and do not have research staff, but may have an
academic appointment to teach on an occasional basis. When a surgeon does not
have an academic appointment or a research history, it can be difficult for
these surgeons to obtain funding for their innovative research ideas. This
program fills a gap in the research landscape in Canada, encouraging community
orthopaedic researchers to bring their research ideas to fruition. Individual
awards are in the amount of $15,000.
The deadline for applications is February 28, 2020.
