Project identification, Proposal development and Submission
Incomplete proposals may be returned to Faculty/School and will not be reviewed by Advisory Committee to the President
In this section you need to ‘grab’ the reviewers’ attention, generate excitement about your research, and explain why it is timely.
We recommend use of headings. This makes it easier for the reader to find the information, to help you arrange your thoughts and plans, and allow you to easily check that you have answered all the questions.
You may only include CVs for those researchers who qualify under our LOF-N/LOF-E streams
-the translation of knowledge, including potential contributions to policy and practice;
-the transfer of technology and skills, and the commercialization of products, services and processes.
Always use concrete examples
This module requires:
Eligible partner contributions
Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and Social Sciences and
Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)
Chairs and Indirect Costs of Research Program)
The CFI will, however, allow the cost of eligible item(s) to be covered in part by these non-eligible partners provided that this portion is not used to leverage CFI funds. The portion of an eligible item’s cost for which the CFI funding will be calculated (usually a maximum of 40 percent) will be the total cost of eligible item(s) less the funding received from the Tri-Council agency or program.
Typically, applications request infrastructure that will be used only for research.
For the required explanation, please write:
“ All equipment will be used exclusively for research and research training of HQP”
In this section the reviewer wants to know if you understand what is required to operate the equipment and what your plans are for obtaining the necessary funding.
IOF available for LOF; request made through the Dean’s Office
