Grant Assist Program

Feedback Debrief for Non-Project/Non-Foundation CIHR Applications

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 cihrgrants@ualberta.ca 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.
