The CIHR Institute of Gender and Health is interested in training and sustaining a strong and diverse foundation of health researchers who integrate sex and gender considerations in their work.

The purpose of IGH’s Institute Community Support (ICS) Program is to build capacity for gender, sex and health research and knowledge translation among trainees, including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows across the full spectrum of health research disciplines.  Whether training in the area of biomedical, clinical, health systems or population health research, all trainees who bring a substantive focus on gender, sex and health to their research are encouraged to apply. 

IGH funds four types of awards through its ICS Program to support research skills development among graduate students and postdoctoral fellows whose research has a substantive focus on gender, sex and health.
