Nova Scotia Health Research Fund (NSH RF)

Nova Scotia Health’s Research Fund is an internal funding program aimed at building the capacity of Nova Scotia Health researchers and helping to catalyze new research opportunities.

Nova Scotia Health’s Research Fund has four categories:

  • Category 1 – $100,000 for experienced researchers
  • Category 2 – $100,000 for early career researchers
  • Category 3 – $50,000 for all researchers
  • Category 4 – $10,000 for research students and trainees

The fall 2020 Research Fund competition accepted applications that were focused on four priority areas for research, in alignment with overall organizational priorities:

  • Aging and continuing care
  • Chronic disease management
  • Mental health and addictions, and
  • Populations with vulnerabilities.

The next Research Fund competition deadline is planned for March 1, 2022.

Please Note: Research grants that will be administered through Nova Scotia Health must use NSH salary scales and benefits. Please contact Research HR for assistance with determining the appropriate salary scales for research positions. Note that 25% must be added on top of salaries to cover the cost of benefit entitlements for PT and FT Long Assignment positions. 15% benefits are required for PT or FT Short Assignments and Casual Relief positions.
