Writing CIHR Proposals (for students in the Physical and Life Sciences) 4 weeks
May 28, 2020 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm UTC
Duration: 4 weeks from May 28 to June 18, 2020
GPS Credits: 1.33 in Research Related Skills
This online course is open to students in the Biomedical Sciences who are applying for Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Doctoral and Master’s Research Awards. In four one-hour online classes, we will review the evaluation criteria for the awards and examine the specific features of successful proposals, focusing on the project summary and partly the training expectations. The lectures will bring to light common errors that lead to ineffective and confusing proposals. Using examples of winning research summaries, we will deconstruct the elements that create intuitive, clear and concise research proposals. Students are expected to work on their own draft proposals, and individualized feedback will be available to course participants.
Course duration: 4 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.
