Institutional Support Text - Training Grant & Fellowship Applications

A growing number of funding mechanisms request information about institutional support for our trainees’ career and professional development. For your convenience, we have summarized some of the institutional services designed to support the research training experiences of postdocs and graduate students. You may cut-and-paste portions of this document in the supplemental sections of funding applications. Contact us if you would prefer a Word document.

CPSO has also developed a template for our postdocs and students to address the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training requirements for training grant applications. Please adapt this template to your particular circumstances. Contact us if you would prefer a Word document.
