DEADLINE: March 5, 2022, 11:59pm Central Time
Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) - Institute of Gender and Health (IGH) Research Trainee Awards
The CIHR - IGH is sponsoring three (3) awards for the Best Trainee Poster Presentations delivered at COGS 2022. Each awardee will receive a 250 CAD monetary prize. All trainees (Undergraduate, Master’s, PhD and Postdoctoral) based at a Canadian university and presenting a poster at COGS 2022 are automatically eligible for this competition.
In addition to the trainee poster awards, CIHR-IGH is also sponsoring a Trainee Oral Presentation Competition at COGS 2022. The competition is open to trainees at the Master’s, PhD or Postdoctoral level that are currently enrolled at a Canadian university. Four (4) trainees will be selected to deliver an oral presentation at COGS 2022 based on the scientific merit of their abstract submission.
Evaluation criteria will include:
- Overall clarity of abstract
- Academic quality of the research presented
- Potential for the advancement of sex and/or gender research.
The four (4) finalists in the CIHR-IGH Trainee Oral Presentation Competition will also receive a Travel Award to attend COGS 2022. The amount of the travel award will be determined based on distance travelled to Montreal and will also include accommodations and conference registration. At the meeting, the oral presentations of each finalist will be evaluated, and the highest-ranked presentation will receive a Best Trainee Oral Presentation Award and a 250 CAD monetary prize.
We recognize that marginalized trainees face systemic barriers in academia, and that the cancellation of many academic conferences throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the loss of opportunities for trainees to present their work, exacerbating these inequities. Therefore, priority for the CIHR-IGH Trainee Oral Presentation Competition will be given to trainees that self-identify with at least one of the following groups: gender minority (transgender, non-binary, genderqueer and/or gender non-conforming), member of an LGBTQIA/2S community, Black, Indigenous, person marginalized by racism, person whose first language is not English, person with a disability and/or person who lives in a remote location.
To be considered for the CIHR-IGH Trainee Oral Presentation Competition, please indicate your interest in the abstract submission form.
