Access to Residual Funds

In most situations at the end of a NSERC or SSHRC grant funding period, grantees receive an automatic extension of one year; this is referred to as the terminal year. At the end of the terminal year any funds remaining are retained under the control of Western, these are referred to as residual funds. For the grantee to receive special permission to access these residual funds, the grantee must demonstrate that unforeseen circumstances existed which prohibited them from completing the project within the approved time frame.

NSERC only: If a renewal has been requested in the terminal year, access to residual funds should not be requested until a decision has been reached on the renewal. Applications would be accepted after the February 29th deadline in this case.
