*Eligibility criteria

A. Applications will be considered for research proposals that are directly relevant to human respiratory health problems. Applications deemed outside the respiratory field will be eliminated from the competition.

B. The principal investigator, who is considered the principal applicant, must hold a faculty appointment at a Canadian university. The British Columbia Lung Association also accepts applications from post-doctoral fellows as the principal investigator (see box below for details). The other applicants (co-principal investigator/co-principal applicant, co-investigators/co-applicants, and collaborators) are not required to hold a faculty appointment. Research associates are not eligible to apply as the principal investigator, although they may apply as a co-principal investigator or co-investigator.

C. The principal investigator must apply to the provincial Lung Association in the province where they hold their faculty appointment. For example, a principal investigator from Alberta is only eligible to apply to the Lung Association – Alberta & NWT.

D. An applicant may only submit one application as a principal investigator or co-principal investigator per year.

E. A principal investigator or co-principal investigator can only hold one new GIA award per year.

F. At the time of registration and for the duration of the award, the principal investigator, co-principal investigator, co-investigator(s), and collaborator(s) are not eligible if they hold or have held funding, directly or indirectly (within the last 10 years for applicants to the Lung Association – AB & NWT), from the tobacco and/or cannabis and/or vaping industry.

G. An eligible institution through which the grant funds will be administered must be available and the institution’s business registration number must be provided.

Alberta & NWT Requirements

1. A principal investigator who has received funding from the Lung Association – Alberta & NWT through a GIA competition for the same project for the past two consecutive years is not eligible for this year’s competition.

2. At the time of registration and for the duration of the award, the principal investigator, co-principal investigator, co-investigator(s), and collaborator(s) are not eligible if they hold or have held funding, directly or indirectly within the last 10 years, from the tobacco and/or cannabis and/or vaping industry.

British Columbia Requirements

1. British Columbia Lung Association accepts applications from post-doctoral fellows as the principal investigator, as well as from faculty members. Post-doctoral fellows who are applying as the principal investigator must indicate the status of their position, that proper infrastructure to support the project is in place, a statement of funding sources, and that salary support is in place for the duration of the project. Additionally, if the post-doctoral fellow’s supervisor is not a co-investigator, a letter of support from the supervisor must be included.

2. At the time of registration and for the duration of the award, the principal investigator, co-principal investigator, co-investigator(s), and collaborator(s) are not eligible if they hold or have held funding, directly or indirectly, from the tobacco and/or cannabis and/or vaping industry.

3. To encourage new investigators, British Columbia gives particular consideration to applications from principal investigators who have received their first faculty appointment within the past five years at the time of registration. An additional score of 0.5 is awarded to new investigators at the British Columbia review meeting, provided that their applications receive a minimum score of 3.5 in the national review.
