Young researchers (graduate students, postdocs, junior faculty) will be given priority; however, proposals from more senior faculty may be considered─for example, a researcher who wants to make a major change in their research program to include methodologies with which they have no experience.
Successful proposals may be funded up to a level of $3000 per applicant. Any funding above that level would depend on the amount available to the IRCN-BC and would require additional justification from the applicant.
Applications are due on May 25, 2012 (late proposals will be considered if funds are still available)
Applicants must submit a proposal consisting of the following parts:
• Cover sheet with personal information
• Description of activities (2 pages maximum)
• Budget for expenses
• Letter of recommendation (graduate or postdoc supervisor only─not needed for more senior researchers)
• Letter of invitation from sponsor
