The Excellence Funds are the result of a University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry (‘the Department’) fundraising effort to provide seed funding for projects by junior faculty that align with the Department’s strategic plan and priorities as expressed by the donors of funds. The three designated areas of priority are: Research, Education and Creative Professional Activity (CPA). With respect to Research, the seed funds are intended to support projects that will generate pilot data to support a subsequent more definitive peer-reviewed grant application, preferably intended for submission to a provincial or national funding agency
