CFAS SMART Fund Grant and Seed Grants

At this present time, CFAS intends to host its Annual Meeting as planned during Sept. 10-12th, 2020, at the Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto. However, we recognize that the research and clinic/lab operations of many of our members and prospective abstract submitters have been temporarily put on hold or otherwise slowed down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to May 30th, 2020. We hope this will provide submitters more time to conduct research or analyze data while still providing abstract reviewers with sufficient time to score abstracts. Please note that this extension also applies to grant applications and award nominations.

Each year, the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society has the pleasure of awarding one SMART Fund Research Grant ($20,000) and three Research Seed Grants ($5000 each) to our members. The SMART (Science and Medicine in Assisted Reproductive Technology) Fund is to initiate and assist furthering research and special projects that align with the CFAS’ mission and values. The Research Seed Grants promote collaboration across distinctly different fields. Seed Grants serve to provide financial assistance to initiate new research or to obtain the preliminary results necessary to start a new a research program that could subsequently be funded by regular grant agencies – a great opportunity to start a new and exciting project!
