The CANO/ACIO Research Grants have been established in order to help build capacity for nursing research across Canada for oncology nurses. The establishment and continuation of such grants demonstrates how the Board of Directors in conjunction with members of the Research Committee is endorsing such nursing activities.

The primary goal of these research grants is to enable nurses to conduct research by providing support to develop a proposal in the early stages of a research project that will result in the conduct of research.

A Scientific Review Panel, at arms-length from the CANO/ACIO Research Committee (with the exception of the Panel Chair who will be a committee member) will conduct a peer-review of the received applications and adjudicate proposals based on established criteria and policies.

Please connect with CANO/ACIO head office at if you have any questions.
