Are you able to review 5 grants for the Maternal Newborn Child and Youth (MNCY) Strategic Clinical Network between October 3 and November 18?

Call for Reviewers!

The mission of the Maternal Newborn Child and Youth (MNCY) Strategic Clinical NetworkTM (SCNTM) is “to bring together people, evidence and data to achieve the best possible health outcomes for mothers, newborns, children and families within a sustainable, publicly funded health care system.” MNCY issued a call for applications for research and quality improvement projects to improve health and clinical care for women, infants, children, and youth in Alberta (the Health Outcomes Improvement Fund).

There has been an overwhelming response to this funding competition, and MNCY is seeking the expertise of external grant reviewers to ensure that our applicants receive fair, objective and constructive feedback on their research projects. In addition, this feedback facilitates judicious allocation of resources and ensures transparency in the grant review process.

Interested reviewers will receive full electronic applications the week of October 3rd, with a final review deadline of November 18th. If you are willing to review applications in response to this call, we hope that this advance notice will allow you to block the required time before the November 18th deadline. We request that reviewers agree to provide feedback on at least 5 applications so you are able to more accurately assess the quality of each application. Applications consist of a six-page proposal plus supporting documents related to team composition and budget. Reviews are completed electronically; you will be asked to provide numeric ratings in several categories and to provide written comments where appropriate.

If you have any questions about the review process or to express interest, please contact Courtney Lundy at by Friday, September 16.
