CIHR Skin Research Training Centre
Assessment Criteria


SRTC trainee scholarship applications are assessed based on multiple criteria.
Students are graded based on their probability of success during training, the overall desirability of the candidate, and the likelihood that they will be able to succeed as skin researchers in the future.
Applicants are graded according to the category to which they apply – Postdoctoral or clinical Fellow, MSc graduate student, or PhD graduate student. Each applicant is given a global score by each committee member according to the scale below, which is then averaged into one composite score.
Scores are then discussed at a CIHR-SRTC committee meeting to determine the acceptability of the grades awarded to each of the applicants. A final decision on the scholarship award is made based on fund availability and the confirmed scores awarded to each applicant.
CIHR Grading Scale:
Funding category Range Range Descriptors
Fundable 4.5-5.0 Outstanding
4.0-4.4 Excellent
3.5-3.9 Very Good
Seldom Funded 3.0-3.4 Acceptable, but low priority
Not fundable 2.5-2.9 Needs revision
2.0-2.4 Needs major revision
1.0-1.9 Seriously flawed
0 Rejected
