MIRA-supported funding opportunities
MIRA and LCMA matching funds for research opportunities
In order to improve the positioning of McMaster’s researchers in external funding competitions, MIRA and the Labarge Centre for Mobility in Aging (LCMA) have allocated funding that could be used to match or leverage external funds. The process for requesting these funds can be found by following the link below. This process is intended to be used for requests related to externally funded, peer-reviewed grant competitions that require a matching component.

Questions about the process or availability of funds should be directed to Laura Harrington, MIRA/LCMA Managing Director: firstname.lastname@example.org, 905-525-9140 ext. 28658.
Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging: Call for Proposals
Deadline: October 16, 2017
MIRA funding can support access fees ($3,000) for up to 10 applications for CLSA data access
Did you know that 47% of CLSA participants use social media daily to connect with family? This is only one example of the type of information held within the rich CLSA database. The CLSA is tracking 50,000 Canadians aged 45 to 85, making thousands of longitudinal variables available for analysis. Data access applications are accepted three times per year. Researchers should notify Laura Harrington (email@example.com) of their intent to apply for CLSA data access to be considered for MIRA funding. MIRA funds will be allocated only to projects that do not have any other funding for this purpose.
