  • Letter of intent or thesis proposal (max. 2 pages) describing proposed research, highlighting transdisciplinary nature of project (may be written in collaboration with proposed co-supervisors).
  • Brief summary of proposed research for publication (max. 10 lines)
  • Letter of support from each supervisor outlining their contribution (transdisciplinary). Why this student is suited for this proposal etc; funding plans; program plans (Courses etc).
  • Letter from student stating specifically why they want to do this project, why they want to do transdisciplinary cancer research, and what they think they will get out of this program. Have they applied elsewhere for funding, and if so, where?

Students are advised to discuss this application and appropriate project and co-supervisors with their supervisor or potential supervisors. Applications to the CIHR Training Program will be evaluated by the Program Management Committee which will then decide on admission to the Program and whether Fellowships will be awarded.

  • Letter of Intent (max. 2 pages) describing proposed research, highlighting transdisciplinary nature of project (may be written in collaboration with proposed co-supervisors).

Interested applicants may contact the Program Administrative Assistant who will circulate their contact information to potential mentors in the QCRI or they may contact supervisors and formulate a research plan with or without contacting the Program Administrative Assistant. It should be noted that the Program will not take responsibility for finding positions for potential PDFs. Once co-supervisors and a position are identified, the PDF and supervisors will formulate a research plan and will apply directly to the Program with the above information. Applications to the Training Program will be evaluated by the Program Management Committee, which will then decide on admission to the Program and whether Fellowships will be awarded.
