Legacy Research Grant

For more than 30 years, LungNSPEI has offered an annual Legacy Research Grant competition to support local respiratory health-related research efforts in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The aim of the Legacy Research Grant is to provide financial support for research projects that generate evidence, outcomes, and/or knowledge and its translation into improved respiratory health and health services for Nova Scotians and Islanders.

We accept applications for research projects that are respiratory health-related and pertain to any of the four missions below.


Mission 1 (Reduce Harm): Advance disease detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention

Mission 2 (Improve Systems and Resources): Strengthen our health care delivery system

Mission 3 (Build Resilience): Care for vulnerable populations

Mission 4 (Innovate for the Future): Promote better opportunities for future health and wellbeing


LungNSPEI is pleased to announce that it is continuing its partnership with Research Nova Scotia to offer up to $70,000 in research grant funds.
