Research Conceptualization, Design and Strategies Mentorship

Do you want help conceptualizing your research program for a SSHRC or other grant proposal?

Do you have the pieces of a great proposal but would like some help organizing them?

Do you have a draft that you would like to discuss? 

Whether you are at the beginning or refinement stage of your grant proposal, it may be helpful to discuss your proposal with a researcher who is new to your research project. Fresh eyes and ears can be useful for helping you crystallize your excellent ideas.

"Micro-Mentorship" involves sharing your ideas and receiving feedback on research questions and objectives, theoretical/conceptual framing, methodology, and outcomes. If you would like to meet with the Director to discuss your research, please contact Heather.YoungLeslie@ualberta.ca or (780) 492-0842.

Mentoring is open to all full-time faculty applying for a social sciences or humanities external grant and can be scheduled at any point in the year. Sessions are usually 2 hours long, but can be adapted to each researcher's needs.
