Now accepting applications for QEII Patient Essentials Fund Grants!

Applications for QEII Patient Essentials Fund Grants are now closed. Please check back on September 18th, 2023.

One thing is clear: QEII staff do everything in their power to make patients feel safe, cared for. 

And we heard you clearly: sometimes patients are more concerned about the financial burden of being sick than they are about their illness. That's not right, and we want to help.

That's why we created the QEII Patient Essentials Fund. Over the next year, the QEII Foundation will award grants to QEII staff based on funds raised in our community. Nova Scotia adult and senior community-based programs are also eligible to apply!

QEII Patient Essentials grants have been allocated for the 2022-2023 fiscal year. Watch for the next call for applications in September 2023 through the NSH Newsletter and email.


Only complete applications will be considered. Healthcare providers that are employees of NS Health at the QEII Health Sciences Centre campus and Nova Scotia Community-based programs are eligible to apply for up to a $500 grant.

OVERVIEW OF ONLINE PROCESS: After you click the APPLY button, a new page will load where you will REGISTER for an account if you haven't already (top-right corner grey register button) which will allow you to save your progress as the application sections are completed. This only takes a minute!
