Supporting priority-driven research

WCHRI enables research that is aligned with our strategic priorities through strategic funding opportunities:

  1. Recruitment supports departments and faculties in recruiting the best researchers to the University of Alberta.
  2. Partnership program provides an opportunity for our members to leverage WCHRI funds in partnership with external granting agencies and other sources of research funding.
  3. ACHRI-WCHRI Team-Based Research Development Fund supports the development of teams to apply for large scale national/ international competitive funding.

All researchers and/or partners who receive funding must properly acknowledge WCHRI and the support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and/or the Alberta Women’s Health Foundation in their research and public publications, websites, presentations, posters and reports.
