Training Focus: Fellowships

The Ontario Mental Health Foundation provides four fellowships to support investigators at various stages in their research career:

Mid-Career Research Fellowships

These fellowships are for a period of three years and up to $40,000 in each year. Researchers are eligible for a maximum of two of these awards in their lifetime.

Mid-Career Research Fellowships are intended to help individuals to continue a career in research once they are established members of the mental health research community, securing time for research that would not otherwise be available.

New Investigator Fellowships

These fellowships are for a period of three years and up to $40,000 in each year. Researchers are eligible for one award in their lifetime.

New Investigator Fellowships help newly independent investigators to develop their line of research and forge a research career.

Postdoctoral Fellowships

These fellowships may be for a period of two or three years and up to $35,000 per year. Researchers are eligible for one award in their lifetime.

Postdoctoral Fellowships support individuals who hold a PhD in a field relevant to mental health.

Research Training Fellowships

These fellowships may be for a period of one, two or three years and up to $35,000 per year. Researchers are eligible for one award in their lifetime.

The Research Training Fellowships provide an opportunity for individuals who have completed professional training and who wish to follow a career that requires further training in research (such as a PhD or master’s degree) and have a reasonable prospect to do so.
