Three presentation/Q&A“Workshops”

The focus of these sessions will be academic in nature and are meant to act as a supplement to what your Faculty and departments may already be offering in terms of one-on-one support for your prospective scholarship applicants. The concept of these workshops will include:

presentations from senior faculty members about their experiences from an institutional committee member and supervisor perspective;
presentation from a faculty member speaking about their experience as a national level committee member;
presentation from representative from the Writing & Communication Centre about resources and services they offer about reviewing research proposals;
presentation from a successful student about tips and words of wisdom from the applicant’s perspective;
open Q&A between audience and speakers;
specific one-on-one time between students and faculty members

The table below identifies the dates and logistics for the presentations/workshops:
