The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is pleased to announce the launch of the Reviewer in Training (RiT) program for the Spring 2022 Project Grant competition.

The RiT program offers Early Career Researchers (ECRs) a learning opportunity to gain a better understanding of the elements of high-quality review and the peer review process through direct participation in the Project Grant competition with the support of a Mentor. RiT participants will be assigned up to three applications to conduct practice reviews, attend the peer review meeting, present one of their reviews, and participate in the committee meeting. Following completion of the RiT program, participants will be promoted within CIHR’s Reviewer Pathway and are expected to participate in peer review when requested and available to do so.

The application period for the RiT program opens on January 10th, 2022 and closes on February 4th, 2022. Please promote this opportunity for ECRs within your networks and institutions.
