Your research plan should clearly explain your planned research within a maximum of 2 pages at no less than a 10 pt font. As far as technical detail goes, there is no steadfast rule; however, when writing the plan keep in mind that the adjudicators may not be technically familiar with your research area.
The content of the support letters is up to your referee, but there are a few key points that should be discussed: (a) the referee’s relationship to the applicant, (b) the applicant's research record, (c) the quality of the research plan, (d) and a summary of why the research is important.
A letter of invitation is required from each institution the applicant will visit where the institution will provide resources (space, materials (including archival materials), equipment, etc.) essential to completing the research program proposed.
It must indicate that the institution supports the proposed visit and will provide the resources required to complete the work that is to be undertaken there.
This is not typically done, but yes, it is possible. Applicants should consult with the Faculty Awards Officer in advance of submitting an application for a 6-month sabbatical.
Study leaves with start dates between July 1st, 2016 and July 1st, 2017 are eligible.
Yes, if you began your study leave on or after July 1, 2016.
No, you do not require tenure, however; tenured applicants generally apply for the Killam Fellowship.
