Changes to the Fellowship Competition Timelines

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on July 8, 2019 in Announcements

Dear Colleagues,

Following the recent launch of the Fall 2019 CIHR Fellowship award competition, we would like to highlight to all affected stakeholders within the research community that the deadline for this competition is earlier than it has been in recent years.

The Fall 2019 competition timelines are:

  • Application Deadline: October 1, 2019
  • Anticipated Notice of Decision: March 31, 2020

The earlier application deadline in turn allows for an earlier notice of decision to more closely align with other national postdoctoral fellowship programs.

We kindly ask that you distribute this information to concerned parties throughout your network.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at
