Stories of Funding

Funded by the International Development Research Centre as part of the Gathering Perspectives Studies, the CCGHR responded to members’ calls for supports in navigating a changing funding landscape. In this collection of stories, members share insights from their experiences in working as part of multinational partnerships, seeking funds from international donors, and being competitive as a global health researcher applying for funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

Each story explores how teams overcame a particular challenge, extending wisdom and innovations about how others might learn from their experience. For teachers and learners, we recommend considering the set of beginning questions in each story by applying the CCGHR Principles for Global Health Research.

We would like to gratefully acknowledge the facilitative leadership and direction provided by Vic Neufeld and Abigail Speller in the development of these stories. We invite you to share your comments with us! Perhaps you too  have an experience of funding that you think would serve as a valuable case for others’ learning. Please  email us with your thoughts at:
