Are you interested in applying to Tri-Council (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) or Fonds de Recherche du Quebec (FRQS, FRQSC, FRQNT) doctoral funding*? Join us for a proposal writing session and learn what makes a successful proposal stand out. 

We will have example proposals on hand to work through and give you tips on writing a strong proposal. Do you have your proposal started already? Feel free to bring a hard copy and receive feedback from fellow graduate students. 

When: Wednesday September 13th 2017, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm.

Where: Education Building, Room 624.
