View the grant winners for our 2018 Secondary Data Use Grant

SAGE (Secondary Analysis to Generate Evidence) is a collaborative data repository platform that connects stakeholders through secondary use of data. Research data, community service data, and administrative data related to health and social well-being is managed and shared through SAGE. SAGE increases the value of data by providing the infrastructure, processes and governance to bring stakeholders together to use data in new ways and inform social policy and practice.

We are accepting proposals for our 2018 Secondary Data Use Grant starting February 20, 2018.  This grant provides $5,000 to successful applicants to undertake research using data in SAGE. The term of the grant is 12 months. The grant offers an excellent opportunity for trainees and new researchers to work with existing birth cohort and survey data.

Please refer to the terms and conditions for eligibility requirements and further details: SAGE Grant Terms and Conditions
