BC Children's Hospital Research Institute Faculty Funding

BC Children's Hospital Research Institute provides funding to its faculty members through award programs supported by BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Investigator Grant Award Program (IGAP) – Applies to all new IGAP Awards awarded on or after January 1, 2015

The Investigator Grant Award Program (IGAP) supports investigators who conduct exceptional child and family health research on the Oak Street and/or Sunny Hill campus. IGAP assists universities, regional health authorities, hospitals or other specific health care organizations in British Columbia in fully or partially funding the compensation costs of their investigators.

The IGAP program is supported by donors to BC Children's Hospital Foundation.

Investigator Salary Award Program (ISAP) – Applies to all ISAP Awards awarded prior to January 1, 2015

The 2009 Investigator Salary Award Program was replaced by the 2015 Investigator Grant Award Program. The 2009 ISAP Guidelines are unchanged and will continue to apply to investigators who currently hold an ISAP Award, unless the researcher elects to transition to the IGAP for the remainder of their ISAP Award term.

Note: If an ISAP is transitioned to an IGAP, the total value of the amended Award (including a BC Children's Hospital Research Institute External Salary Recognition Award, if applicable) cannot exceed the maximum amount of the original ISAP Award.

Investigator Establishment Award Program

The Investigator Establishment Award Program assists faculty members recently recruited to BC Children's Hospital to establish independent health research programs and achieve the research productivity necessary for obtaining longer term and more substantial funding from national and other external agencies. These awards are not renewable.
