Calling all Orthopaedic Researchers!

Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation invites applications for:

INAUGURAL – CSES Research Grant

In 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)

The Community 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.
