If your schedule permits, you can attend all of the workshops.  If not, attend the components that you able to. If you are able to attend, please send an e-mail to nserc.research@lakeheadu.ca by August 26. 

Graduate students who want to know more about Canadian Grant writing culture are more than welcome to attend, as are faculty from other Tri-Council agencies who want a different perspective on writing strategic documents.

We look forward to seeing you there!
