Applicants are invited to consult the Scores and ratings grid for evaluation committees used by the evaluation committees.
An overall passing grade of 70% is required. A passing grade of 70% is also required for the ‘Research Proposal' criterion.
As indicated in section 4 of the CGR, the Fonds receives applications for financial assistance, checks their eligibility and submits them for evaluation by specially formed multidisciplinary committees. Further to the indications in the CGR, the committee is primarily composed of researcher-creators working in a university setting but in different disciplines. The research-creation proposal must therefore be written in such a way as to be easily understandable. The committee may also include university researchers, professional artists or resource persons known for their expertise, skills and specific knowledge in the field of arts and letters. These committees may need to consult outside experts. The research proposal must therefore be written in such a way as to be easily understandable. The evaluation committee members and experts may be from Québec, Canada or elsewhere. The evaluation committees recommend funding for applications they judge to be scientifically and creatively sound.
