Foundation Competition Resources

CIHR is undergoing significant changes to its open programs and associated peer review (see http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/44761.html). The Grant Assist Program (Health Sciences) [GAP-HS] is dedicated to supporting applicants as they navigate changes at CIHR thus this folder includes resources such as mock applications and strategic checklists. More resources will be added as they are developed.

    Title: Strategic Checklist for Stage 2 Applications to the CIHR Foundation Scheme
    Creator: McPhalen, Cathy - PhD, thINK Editing
    Description: This document is a checklist of strategic aspects for all sections of a CIHR Foundation Scheme Stage 2 application. The checklist is designed to be used by anyone reviewing a grant application document before it is submitted to a CIHR Foundation Scheme competition. Intended users include members of Internal Review committees, grant application editors, colleagues of an applicant, and (of course) applicants themselves. Items in this checklist concentrate on strategy and grantsmanship. Items that address readability and organization are included, as these factors have a strong impact on a reviewer’s perception of the grant application as easy to read and understand. Good strategy always includes making the reviewer’s job easier.
