Sponsoring Institution Policy

PSI now accepts applications from eligible applicants located from outside of Toronto where their research institute/hospital is named as the sponsoring institution.

Previously, such applicants would have had to identify their university as the sponsoring institution.

Eligible institutions must:

  • be located in the Province of Ontario
  • be a registered charity
  • have its own, independent research ethics board
  • be eligible to hold Canadian Institute of Health Research grants. The list can be found at http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/36374.html.

*Application forms and guidelines will be updated in the near future.
