Competition opens for catalyst grants and trainee awards in stroke recovery

Letters of Intent must be registered by March 4 

Two CPSR grant opportunities just announced will:

  • provide seed funding to encourage investigator-driven early stage, innovative and collaborative research in stroke rehabilitation & recovery,
  • help train and support the next generation of research talent.

Catalyst Grants: 
Up to $50K per Catalyst Grant

Through the Catalyst Grant initiative CPSR researchers will be able to explore novel ideas quickly and make new discoveries that will advance our mission to identify, support and share game-changing stroke recovery research that will improve the lives of stroke survivors.  CPSR intends to fund proposals of high scientific excellence with great potential to change practice, now or in the future. Both applied translational and basic science research are important to realize these discoveries and submissions from both lines of inquiry are equally encouraged, provided a clear rationale as to potential future clinical impact of the research is included. Up to $50,000 per catalyst grant is available to all researchers working at CPSR sites and the top-ranked grant will be awarded the Dr. Tony Hakim Stroke Research Award.

Trainee awards:
Matching funds for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows

Fostering high caliber trainees and encouraging cross-training in translational approaches to stroke rehabilitation and recovery is an important strategic priority of the CPSR. By providing targeted funding for trainees who have access to leading national and international stroke recovery researchers, we intend to help provide recognition and funding to trainees early in their academic research career and fortify their commitment as stroke recovery researchers.  Matching funding will be available for graduate students (up to $12,500) and post-doctoral fellows (up to $25,000), with equal matching funding provided by the supervisor (or their institution). The respective top-ranked applicants will be awarded the Martin Rothstein Post-Doctoral Award and the Luc Vanneste Graduate Student Award.
