Letters of Support

WCHRI can provide letters of support to academic members who are submitting grant applications.

All requests must be made by a WCHRI academic member who has a leadership role within the application. Letters of support will be drafted by the academic member and must utilize the WCHRI support letter template as a guideline.

The draft letter should:

  • highlight WCHRI support for the proposal; and, 
  • include substantive information about how the Principal Investigator intends to leverage WCHRI resources, networks, or platforms (should their application be successful).

To request a letter of support, please contact WCHRI grants administration at wcgrants@ualberta.ca.

For information about writing effective letters of support please see CIHR Writing Letters of Support.
