The Would You Fund It? fellowship consultation session is a new layer of application review open to graduate and undergraduate students who are applying for external funding. Students will have the opportunity to have their two-page project summary reviewed by a former Tri-council or Quebec committee reviewer in a 20 minute appointment. The reviewer will scan the document and provide feedback on the structure, relevance, and language accuracy with suggestions on how to improve the draft.
It can be a struggle to articulate what your research contributes to the field. But in a graduate funding proposal, this is often what makes or breaks your application.
Come to this workshop and learn how to highlight the purpose and contributions of your research.
Melatonin Supplements Could Prevent Osteoporosis
In recent years, melatonin supplements have exploded on the market as a tool to help people get to sleep—the Nutrition Business Journal estimated that in 2012 (the most recent year for which data are available) sales reached $260 million; in 2007, that number was just $90 million. Now scientists say the immensely popular pills could help prevent or even reverse osteoporosis.
