The CRBLM wants to promote interdisciplinary research and to support training opportunities for its graduate student members. We wish to promote research that is of scientific, social and/or clinical significance and to stimulate knowledge transfer activities between CRBLM and its larger community. Graduate student members are encouraged to submit an application describing a current or upcoming project that forms an integral part of your program of study.
Eligibility : CRBLM Graduate Student Members (Master’s and Doctorate)
Deadline : November 14th, 2017
Amount : up to $6,000
The results of the award will be provided in mid-December.
- Stipends are available for students who receive $15,000 or less in funding from an external agency or through an award or fellowship. Departmental and/or supervisor stipends are not included in this restriction.
- The application needs to be signed by a primary supervisor.
- There is a maximum of one award per primary supervisor.
- To support interdisciplinary work within the CRBLM.
- Projects should be related to the CRBLM research axes, and applications with supervisors across universities and with cross-research domains will be prioritized.
- Co-supervision* by more than one centre member working across axes is one of the important criteria for applications.
- Applications that include a third, non-member supervisor who represents a specific industry, community or clinical group, and where the project represents a knowledge transfer activity between the centre and that group, are encouraged.
*Co-supervision refers to the involvement of two CRBLM regular members in a student’s project. It does NOT require students to be formally registered, in their home universities, as being jointly supervised.
- The review committee will evaluate applications based on the quality of the proposal and CV. A letter of support from the project supervisor must be sent to the centre under separate cover; it should address the applicant’s research potential and achievements, as well as the applicant’s involvement in, and contributions to the CRBLM research community.
- The committee will also evaluate the applicant’s ability to concisely describe the hypothesis, method, analysis and expected outcome of a current project that forms part of the program of study, within the context of its larger contribution to basic, applied or clinical research in areas covered by our mandate. Applicants are asked to highlight the knowledge transfer potential of their project.
- A minimum standard of quality is expected in applications. Awards will be disbursed only if the minimum standard requirement, as defined by the review committee, is met. Otherwise, the funding will be redirected to another initiative.
