The boundaries of who is eligible for funding are a little wider in the CBR program than in other CIHR funding programs. Nonetheless, there are boundaries and it is essential to ensure that you fall within those boundaries.
The Eligibility section of the FO sets out exactly who is eligible to apply for funding.
This is where it gets a bit technical as to who's who – but you do not want to get excluded on a technicality, so it is important to pay attention to terms like Nominated Principal Applicant (the project leader), Eligible Institution (an organization that is eligible to manage CIHR funds and has signed a Memorandum of Understanding – more about that later) and Principal Knowledge User.
There are links in the FO that will let you see exactly who falls into each category.
