Insight Grant Bootcamp

It's never too early to start writing your grant! The 2023 Insight Grant submission deadline of October 1 will come quicker than you expect! Internal Peer Review deadlines are late August and the Research Services Office deadline is in mid-September. Therefore Summer is your best time to complete your Insight Grant application. Don't wait, start thinking and writing your Insight Grant now!

The Research Partners Network is offering a grant application writing 'Boot Camp' targeted to the Insight Grant competition and is appropriate for emerging and established scholars. Each session will include instruction on a particular section of the application, time for Q & A, and time for writing. There will also be homework, including providing feedback on other colleagues' drafts. Sessions will build upon each other, and drop-ins to single sessions are not permitted.

The 2023 sessions will be held on the following days, from 09:00 to 16:00 (format to be determined):

  • Tuesday, June 6
  • Friday, June 9
  • Tuesday, June 13
  • Thursday, June 15
  • Thursday, June 22

By the end of the Boot Camp you should have:

  1. Clear understanding of the expectations of the Insight Grant application: what succeeds with adjudicators, including how to score higher and pitfalls to avoid;
  2. Good outline of your proposal, including the Detailed Description, Budget, Knowledge Mobilization and Effective Research Training components;
  3. Draft version of an exciting Summary Page; and
  4. Plan for what more you need to do over the summer in order to have a solid research application to submit in the autumn

Registering here will put you on a waitlist for the Boot Camp. However, by registering you are also committing to fully participating in all boot camp sessions and assignments. You will be notified about entry into the boot camp at the end of April.
