Ministry of Health Research Seed Grant Program

The Ministry of Health Research Seed Grant Program provides funding to universities in BC to produce research that responds to pertinent health-related questions identified by the Ministry. The program aims to:

  • Generate new research that responds to the Ministry of Health’s current needs
  • Produce research proposals that are informed by policymakers
  • Build a knowledge transfer pathway from researchers to the Ministry of Health
  • Build relationships between Ministry of Health staff and researchers and between BC’s research universities and the Ministry of Health
  • Increase transparency of how the Ministry of Health uses research and evidence
  • Increase exposure and understanding of research and the research process across Ministry of Health staff

The call for proposals for 2023/24 funding will open in the fall.
