The Office of Sponsored Research is pleased to invite faculty members to two upcoming NSERC Discovery Grant workshops.


Getting Your Grant: Strategies for Success 


McGill researchers, both new and established, who are planning to submit an NSERC Discovery Grant application this fall, are strongly encouraged to attend a series of NSERC Discovery Grant workshops organized by the Office of Sponsored Research throughout the summer.


The goal of these sessions is to provide "behind the scenes" information about the peer review committee process and activities, as well as helpful tips and "tricks of the trade" for researchers to enhance the quality of their applications. The sessions will focus on successful strategies for planning and writing a grant application, with particular emphasis on the restructured peer review system and the evaluation process. Recent competition results will also be covered.


Additional sessions will be held if necessary, however please note that these would be duplicate sessions in terms of the topics discussed. Announcements for future sessions will follow at a later date once details become available.


Please RSVP to lauren.clark [at] mcgill.ca () by Monday, June 9th at 5:00 P.M. for the both sessions.
