Opportunities for researchers

We partner with leading organizations from BC, Canada, and around the world to nurture BC health research talent and advance new treatments and cures. Our partnerships support researchers primarily in two ways: through Michael Smith Health Research BC’s suite of funding competitions and match funding.

Partnered awards through Health Research BC funding competitions

Our partners co-fund researchers working in their priority areas through Health Research BC’s suite of funding competitions. To learn more about organizations currently interested in co-funding Health Research BC researchers, view our current co-funding opportunities.

  • If you are interested in receiving a partnered Health Research BC award, let us know when prompted in your funding application.
  • If you have already applied for a Health Research BC award and would like to be considered for a partnered Health Research BC award, please email the Partnerships team with your Application ID and the name of any partner(s) you are interested in.

Match funding opportunities

We offer match funding to qualifying BC-based researchers and research teams applying to non-BC government-funded research competitions that require applicants to source match funding as a condition of the application.
