All grant applications MUST be submitted to OFFERING along with a copy of the OSR checklist, which can be found under point number 6 here. They will be forwarded to the Dean’s Office.

Internal Deadlines

For review and signature

In order to guarantee an in-depth review of your proposal, your application must be submitted to OFFERING at least 10 business days before the OSR deadline. For example, if the OSR deadline is 3 October 2011, the OFFERING deadline would be 19 September 2011 at 5.00pm. Review of applications received after the OFFERING deadline cannot be guaranteed.

Please offering [dot] education [at] mcgill [dot] ca (email) an electronic copy of your application and drop off your completed OSR checklist (with department chair’s signature) and any other documents requiring signature to office #249 of the Education Building.

For signature only

Although it is highly recommended, it is not compulsory to have your proposal reviewed by OFFERING. However, in order to obtain the Dean/Associate Dean/Delegate’s signature on your application and/or OSR checklist, a copy of the full proposal must be submitted at least 48 hours prior to the OSR deadline (excluding weekends). For example, if the OSR deadline is Monday, 3 October 2011 at 10:00am, documents must be submitted to OFFERING by Thursday, 29 September 2011 at 10:00am.

Please offering [dot] education [at] mcgill [dot] ca (email) an electronic copy of your application  and drop off your completed OSR checklist (with department chair’s signature) and any other documents requiring signature to office #249 of the Education Building.

Important note: an OSR checklist must be submitted to OFFERING for all applications for funding, even if the latter are being submitted directly to the sponsor and do not need to pass through the Office of Sponsored Research. The reason for this is to have a record of applications for funding. This greatly accelerates the process for OSR should the grant eventually be awarded and, consequently, ensures that there are no undue delays for the researcher in accessing their funds. In addition, this assists OFFERING by allowing accurate and up-to-date records to be kept which, in turn, allow for a more personalized and targeted assistance to the researcher.
