Joint Grant Awards Program

The Joint Grant Awards Program (JGAP) supports research that poses questions of high relevance to family medicine. The maximum award for JGAP grants is $50,000. Applications for smaller-scale studies with lower costs are also welcome.

The program goals are:

  • Support research of value to the practicing family physician
  • Encourage proposals by junior investigators
  • Fund pilot studies
