The CIP Application Process

Please read the FAQs for answers to common questions.

  1. Schedule an In-person Chat

    • Schedule a meeting with the CIP Program Admin to discuss the program, questions and your goals by emailing cip@ucalgary.ca . These meetings are informal (yet informative) chats, our Admin expects that you are just beginning to think about doing research so it's never too early to schedule this meeting.
       
    • A followup meeting with you, your Supervisor and the CIP Program Director is also highly recommended before submitting your application. This second meeting will help you clarify your supervisory and project goals.
  2. Review other relevant CIP documents

  3. You're Ready to Apply!

    Use the Checklist for the CIP application, page 2 of the Main Application Form to make sure you have submitted all required documentation.

    Download and complete the Application Forms

    You will also need to submit copies of the relevant Canadian Common CV (CCV)

    • For Supervisor's CCV, use CIHR format, either Academic or Project Biosketch
    • For Resident Candidate CCV, use CIHR format, Academic. If you don't yet have a CCV, now is a good time to begin preparing one.
  4. Funding

    All CIPs are required to apply for external funding, and part of the application asks where you are considering applying for that funding.
