NOW OPEN: Lawson Foundation Diabetes funding up to $200,000/project

Diabetes fundingHey Funds Fans!  I’ve been patiently waiting for this one to re-open and booyah, here it is.

The Lawson Foundation  seeks to award $2,000,000 through a Canada-wide call for letters of intent. The objective of this funding is to strengthen the delivery of diabetes prevention, care and management programs and services through innovation, translational research, knowledge translation and quality improvement.  Ten projects will each receive a maximum grant of $200,000 payable over two years.  Deadline:  Monday, January 20, 2014 at 6:00 pm ET. 

The Diabetes Program envisions a Canadian population with reduced rates of diabetes and diabetes-related complications.  Program goals are to:

  • To improve the health of people with or at risk of developing diabetes through research, care and improved/sustained self-management.
  • To slow the forecasted trends in the burden and impact of diabetes.
