Non-Project Feedback Debrief

Deadline for Intent to Declare Participation in a Feedback Debrief: 10 weeks before the CIHR deadline.

Note: We encourage applicants to declare their intent to participate in the Feedback Debrief well before the deadline. Engaging the Grant Assist Program (Health Sciences) earlier provides a better chance of securing the applicant's first choice of reviewers, including those reviewers who have participated in the relevant peer review process at CIHR.

Interested applicants should email with the following:

  1. Name of the CIHR funding opportunity which the application will be submitted.
  2. Title of application and 1-page summary.
  3. List of any co-applicants.
  4. Names of six University of Alberta faculty who may be contacted to participate as reviewers.* It is helpful to indicate the reason for each reviewer's inclusion (e.g. content expert, CIHR peer review committee member)

*Having reviewers with different expertise can be helpful. See here for a list of UofA faculty who have reviewed at CIHR.

The Feedback Debrief will be scheduled for the applicant and 2 reviewers, 8 weeks before the CIHR deadline.

Deadline for Submission of Selected Revised Sections for Review: 6 weeks before the CIHR deadline.

Note: The timeline above is preferred, but will depend on when the funding opportunity results are released.
