RE:   Changes to Letters of Offer

As a result of recent changes to the Connaught Start-up Award Program, it is necessary to change the wording of the paragraph on Research Support in our letters of offer for tenure-stream faculty. The paragraphs have been revised as follows:

As a new tenure-stream faculty member of the University, you will be eligible to receive a $10,000 Connaught Start-Up Award to assist you in your immediate research costs. In order to receive this award you will need to submit a research plan during the first year of your appointment. [insert any other relevant start-up support, such as lab space] General information about research services and funding opportunities for new faculty can be found at www.library.utoronto.ca/rir/welcome.html.
