Grant Match Funding

The NOAMA Board, with the support of the Physician Clinical Teachers’ Association (PCTA), has designated a portion of the Alternate Funding Plan to a NOAMA Grant Match Fund.

This funding intends to increase the ability of NOSM University PCTA researchers to grow programs of research and attract research dollars from outside of Northern Ontario. NOAMA will provide match funding to qualifying PCTA researchers and research teams who are applying to other research competitions that require applicants to source match funding as a condition of the application.

The NOAMA Grant Match Funding (GMF) is an ongoing competition and the GMF Sub-Committee manages the GMF process and recommends approval of GMF projects to the NOAMA Board. NOAMA invites all AFP participating physicians to submit an application for grant match funding. Learn more here.

Call for Proposals: 2024 AHSC AFP Innovation Fund
NOAMA invites all AFP Participating Physicians to submit a project proposal for the 2023 AFP Innovation Fund Competition: Due October 17th, 2023
The AFP Innovation Fund provides funding to support the development of new and innovative approaches to health care delivery and to provide leadership in the dissemination of new knowledge across the healthcare system.
**NEW Funding Guidelines**
NOAMA encourages budgets at $30k/annum, with higher budgets being considered for exceptional projects. One grant at $60k/annum ($120k over two years) will be awarded in the “Mid-Scale Grant Category.” Of note, those that apply in this category would only be eligible for the $60k/annum category. They would not be considered for funding at the lower budget category of $30k/annum if unsuccessful.
(Grants must be compliant with AFP Grant Application Checklist)
