Application Tip #84
I am applying for the Short-Term Research Grant. Are there specific format requirements for proposals?

We do not have specific format requirements. Our general guideline is to be considerate to the reviewer - i.e. a font that's not too small (12 pt is usually the most comfortable) and of a simple, easy-to-read style; make sure there is adequate space in the margins for reviewers to make notes. For the Short-Term Research Grant, the research proposal should not exceed 5 pages.
