Jointly funded by the Office of the Vice President (Research) and the Faculty, this initiative is targeted to established researchers who no longer hold an external NSERC grant, and whose most recent NSERC award end date (excluding any terminal years) falls within 2 years previous of this application deadline. Within one year of the competition deadline, researchers must have unsuccessfully applied to an external NSERC competition. The purpose of this funding is to address specific deficiencies in the most recent grant submission, as highlighted in NSERC referee reports (such as HQP training, publication rate, generation of preliminary data, etc.), and increase the likelihood of success in subsequent grant competitions. Successful applicants must submit an external NSERC grant application within two years of the start of the initial award and are encouraged to also apply for other external support.

Applications should be completed according to the posted instructions. All applications with a ROLA proposal must be submitted to Research Development & Services (RD&S) by 4:30 pm on the deadline date. If a deadline date falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline will be extended to the next business day. It is the responsibility of the researcher to ensure that all conditions are met and that the application is complete and submitted to RD&S as required. Late, ineligible or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Application Details: Guidelines, a link to ROLA, and application and final report forms are available at: One competition will be held each year.This program is administered by the Internal Grants Coordinator in Research Development and Services under the general terms of reference outlined in the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) guidelines. Completed submissions will be administered in electronic format only.
NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline.
