Going for an external grant? Here's what you need to know, and how we can help. All notifications and requests must be submitted online through the Research Services Portal.
Notice of Intent to Apply
Island Health employees are required to submit a Notice of Intent to Apply if:
- You are the Principal Applicant on a grant application, with Island Health as your primary institutional affiliation, OR
- You are the Island Health lead on the grant application (as co-applicant, collaborator, etc.)
Once we receive your notification, we can connect you with the right people and departments, help you develop your budget, and request letters of support on your behalf.
NOTE: only one notice per application is required. Notifications must be submitted as soon as possible and are requested at least:
2 months in advance of the first deadline in the application process that requires approvals or letters from Island Health (whether pre-application, letter of intent, draft, or full application) for grants over $100,000
1 month in advance of the first deadline in the application process that requires approvals or letters from Island Health (whether pre-application, letter of intent, draft, or full application) for grants under $100,000
Island Health may specify internal deadlines ahead of individual competitions. Please check our list of upcoming external grant deadlines, or contact Isabel.Moore@viha.ca to confirm.
We can assist external researchers in requesting letters from Island Health to support grant applications aligned with our strategic priorities.
