Writing CIHR Proposals for Students in the Physical and Life Sciences (3 weeks)
September 10 @ 5:00 am – 7:00 pm EDT
Program Partner: GCAC
GPS Program: 2 Credits in Research-Related Skills
This three-week course is open to students who are applying for CIHR (Canadian Institutes of Health Research) Master’s and Doctoral Research Awards. In three two-hour classes, we will examine the specific features of successful grant proposals and bring to light common errors that lead to bad proposals. As well, we will be looking at examples of winning proposals. Students are expected to work on their own draft proposals, and individualized feedback will be available to course participants. While several of the concepts examined will also be of relevance to students applying for an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), the focus of the course is on writing an effective CIHR proposal. (Check with your department regarding your eligibility to apply for funding through CIHR and/or OGS.)
Course duration: 3 weeks.
Subject to attendance and work submission requirements, this course may be used for credit in the School of Graduate Studies’ Graduate Professional Skills program.
