Rural research grant applications due by Oct 30

If you’re planning to apply for either the Rural Physician Research Support Project grant, or the Rural Global Health Partnership Initiative grant, you must complete and send your application package to Adrienne Peltonen (apeltonen@rccbc.ca) by October 30 

The Rural Physician Research Support Project offers up to $10,000 per year to support the rural research work of Bfamily physicians that either live and work in a rural community or that have strong ties with rural and remote communities. Projects and research that advance the health of rural citizens in BC are eligible for this funding.  

The Rural Global Health Partnership Initiative funds partnerships between rural BC physicians or medical trainees committed to rural service and lower resource communities in BC, Canada, and developing nations. Grants of up to $5,000 per year  and $10,000 per year are available to help these partnerships promote and enhance rural generalist healthcare capacity, foster reciprocal learning, and create innovative rural healthcare solutions that lead to improved health outcomes.
