The Canadian Asthma, Allergy and Immunology Foundation (CAAIF) is a charitable organization, established to increase educational opportunities and research resources for the Canadian Allergy and Immunology community. The 2019 competition will focus on food allergy research and will provide one grant of $25,000. The CAAIF Research Committee will oversee the application review process.

The goal of the Foundation is not to replace larger granting bodies who fund allergy and/or immunology research. Due to the limited nature of our funds, this competition may be a means of securing seed or supplemental funding for larger projects or to initiate an innovative project idea that requires preliminary data before a larger grant application can be made. Projects that are more appropriately aimed at the pharmaceutical industry will not be considered.

Applications should include:

  • The completed application form
  • A three-page outline of the proposed project and its relevance
  • A budget with justification (maximum 2 pages)
  • CV(s) for the applicant or applicants (CIHR academic common CV format preferred)
  • Declaration and Signature Form

Please keep in mind the modest size of the grant and define the scope of the work and budget appropriately. If there are additional sources of funds that will also support this application, please identify them. The proposal must be completed within a 12-month period. More information can be found on the application form.

Preference will be given to investigators who have not received this award within the past two years.

Please forward your complete application assembled into one PDF file via email by February 28, 2019 at 11:00 pm in the time zone of the applicant to info@caaif.ca.
