Grants

CAMAP has committed to supporting MAiD research through financial grants, as possible, for new or ongoing research projects as well as for knowledge transfer.

Research grants are available between $1,000 and $3,000 (primarily $1,500 each) and are meant to offset the cost of research assistants, transcriptions, or similar.

Knowledge transfer grants are available between $1,000 and $2,500 (primarily $1,000 each) and are meant to offset the cost of publishing fees as well as other methods of knowledge transfer.

Research Projects

CAMAP values quality, evidence-based research on MAiD to help us better understand this important and sometimes complex new field of health care.

We support the research community by offering research grants and hosting Research Forums twice a year where researchers share their current work.

Through our Research and Knowledge Transfer Grants, CAMAP is proud to share some of the important work that we have supported:
