Would You Fund It?: Fellowship Application Review

Funding your graduate program is stressful for many graduate students, but we have tools to help you succeed!

Would you Fund it? gives you the opportunity to have your two-page project summary reviewed by a former Tri-Agency (CIHR, NSERC or SSHRC) or Quebec committee (FRQNT, FRQS, FRQSC) reviewer. SKILLSETS will ensure that you are paired with the appropriate committee reviewer, who will scan the document and provide feedback on structure, relevance, and language accuracy with suggestions on how to strengthen your draft. You have 25 minutes for a one-on-one consultation. 

This year, consultations will be conducted in person on the following dates:

Space is very limited - first-come, first-served basis

  • Thursday, September 14 - Registration closed
  • Wednesday, September 20 - Registration closed
  • Tuesday, September 26 - Registration closed

Reviewers will use the Research Proposal Checklist as a general guideline to evaluate your 2-page research proposal.

 WYFI is not a proofreading or editorial consultation. Thus, we would expect your proposal to be completed and reviewed by your supervisor before registering.
