2020 NSERC USRA Applications - Due February 24

Monday, February 24, 2020 - 16:00
Submit to Dept of Physics

New for the upcoming 2020 Summer Competition:

  1. Supervisors no longer need to hold an active grant to be eligible but they still need to provide supplemental funding (minimum contribution of $4,516). They also need to be an RFA member.
  2. While the proposed research project must clearly lie within the natural sciences and/or engineering (NSE), it is not necessary for the proposed supervisor’s research program to be exclusively within the NSE.
  3. In an effort to make the application process easier for all parties involved, we are no longer requiring or accepting paper submissions. Per the details attached, the applicants/supervisors are required to submit:
    • the Form 202 (along with the student's transcripts) via the NSERC On-line Services Portal; and
    • the Student Statement via Google Forms.
  4. There will be a limit of one (1) USRA award per supervisor.
