The session will break down the grant writing and evaluation process from the point of view of a successful research grant holder and an evaluation committee member. Factors that strengthen or impede a proposal’s chances to be funded will be the focus. This session is co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice-Principal, Research, and the Centre for Teaching and Learning.
