Funded projects

CFI funding is awarded through a merit-review process that involves researchers and administrators from research institutions and the private sector. These volunteers review proposals, typically in committees, and make funding recommendations. The recommendations are then reviewed by the CFI Board of Directors for final funding decisions.

See below for a list of projects awarded CFI funding since 1997.
