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 career 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 2013 competition, are encouraged to attend this information session.
The session will include:
- Brief presentation of the objectives and requirements of the Start-Up Program for New Research Professors Grants by Linda Kemp, Grants Officer
- Presentations by McGill researchers with experience as committee members and/or grant awardees under this program. They will provide potential applicants with insider information about the peer-review system and/or strategies for creating successful proposals:
- Professor Martin Bressani, School of Architecture
- Doctor Garth Green, Faculty Religious Studies
OSR will provide an internal guide for preparing applications to this funding opportunity, which will be distributed after the workshop.
FRQSC deadline: October 2, 2013 | 4:00 p.m.
