Frequently in academia, research proposals are peer reviewed by other scientists/researchers with appropriate knowledge in an effort to obtain impartial evaluations on the applications. Having others appraise and comment on these proposals provides researchers with the opportunity to improve the quality of their applications thus increasing the chance of funding success.
To ensure that researchers at Lakehead University have an advantage in the competitive research funding arena, the Office of Research Services (ORS) has a program that would enable NSERC Discovery Grant applications to be peer reviewed prior to submission. This program is voluntary but highly recommended for new investigators and previously unsuccessful NSERC grant applicants.
