The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) is pleased to invite McGill faculty members and administrators to an information session on FRQSC’s Start-Up Program for New Research Professors Program. The purpose of this program is to assist new researchers who have just launched their careers to become established as independent researchers and to become competitive nationally and internationally.


New researchers in social sciences and humanities, arts and literature, who are planning to apply to the upcoming FRQSC Fall 2014 competition are encouraged to attend this information session.

3.      Question & answer period. For those who wish, questions may be sent in advance to [at] (Linda Kemp)
