What’s Upcoming?

• For Master’s Awards, CIHR will be working with
  Institutions to define requirements for data exchange
  and develop a process for University approval and
  access to applications

Ce qui est à venir…
• Pour les Bourses de recherche à la maîtrise,
  consultation avec les institutions afin d’établir des
  processus pour l’échange de données ainsi que pour le

                 Completeness Policy
           Tips for CIHR Award Applicants

Common issues with Award Applications:
• Missing CV modules: most training award
  applications require the CIHR CV Module for the
  candidate and the proposed supervisor(s)
• Official transcripts are required…certified copies will
  not be accepted
• Completed Sponsor’s Assessments should be sent to
  CIHR to meet the application deadline
• Ensure all components of the application are
  completed and included when the application is
  submitted…incomplete applications are
  withdrawn from the competition
      Funding Opportunities in General…


       June and December

The next announcement of funding opportunities is
           scheduled for December 2008
