Janeway Foundation’s 2021 Research Awards
Academic Unit: Inquire with your unit
Memorial Deadline: Monday 19th, July 2021
External Deadline: Thursday 22nd, July 2021
The Janeway Research Advisory Committee (JRAC) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Janeway Foundation’s 2021 Research Awards. These awards support research which has the potential to improve children’s health care in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Please note that, due to the current covid-19 pandemic, there is uncertainty about when research activities will return to normal. Depending on how things progress, timetables may need to be altered and deadlines changed. We anticipate that preparation and submission of proposals can go ahead without face-to-face contact.
Our rationale for proceeding with the regular scheduled time for the call for proposals is to ensure that research activities, including student projects, are not unnecessarily delayed once research activities are allowed to continue.
- This year’s research grants will be awarded in two categories:
- – Independent Investigators are eligible for awards up to $15,000; and
- – Trainees (including medical residents, graduate students, and undergraduate students of Memorial University) are eligible for awards up to $6000.
Please see the committee’s terms of reference for more information about the awards (attached).
Complete and signed applications must be received by:
4:30 PM, Thursday, July 22, 2021
Due date for RGCS general application in MUN Researcher Portal is Friday, July 16, 2021.
Please check with your faculty/unit for their internal deadlines.
Applications must include either the independent investigator cover page or the trainee cover page (attached), depending on the category of award being applied for, and complete contact information for the applicant (phone, mail address, and email address).
Applications from independent investigators must include a project proposal of no more than five pages (excluding references), a one page budget and justification, and a current CV from the principal applicant. The project proposal should include the following sections: A) background and rationale; B) research objectives; C) experimental design and methods; D) relevance to children’s health in Newfoundland and Labrador; E) implications for future research; and F) project timeline.
Applications from trainees must include a project proposal of no more than five pages (excluding references), a one page budget and justification, and a current CV from the trainee.

All grant applications must be submitted via the MUN Researcher Portal for both faculty level and institutional level approval by RGCS prior to submission to the Janeway Foundation Grant competition. Each application should be submitted as a single PDF file, with the completed cover page scanned into the application and an institutional approval from the RGCS. This PDF file should be sent to Dr. Rana Aslanova, Research Manager for the Janeway Pediatric Research Unit (JPRU), at Rana.Aslanova@med.mun.ca.
