2018 Information Sessions

To assist potential applicants, a number of Information Sessions will be held–you only need to attend one of the sessions and you can elect which one you attend based on convenience. Sessions are open to any applicant from any Directorate/Calvary but we do ask that you RSVP by emailing the contact person to confirm your attendance.

Why do I need to attend?

If you are considering submitting an application in 2018 or if you are likely to be asked to support an application as a supervisor or referee you are strongly encouraged to attend and hear about Scheme expectations of applicants, supervisors and referees as well as application and assessment processes.

What will be presented?

Important information about the Scheme will be presented including:

  • The 2018 Guidelines for Applicants, Supervisors and Referees
  • The 2018 Application Package
  • Application procedure, including requirement to register your ‘intent to apply’ with your agency’s Scheme Secretariat.

What if I am unable to attend a session?
