If you are registered, or intend to register, in a clinically-oriented program of study, you must ensure that you meet NSERC eligibility criteria at the time of application, otherwise your application will be rejected. If you are registered, or intend to register, in a joint program which includes a professional degree (e.g., MD/PhD), your application will be ineligible.

If you began a master’s degree and transferred to a doctoral degree without completing the master’s, indicate this by selecting the appropriate field. For your doctorate, the start date will be the date on which you were first officially registered in a PhD program.

If you have more than one bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree, indicate the natural sciences and engineering degree in the area of research for which you are applying for funding in the appropriate Type of degree section, specifying “Bachelor’s”, “Master’s” or “Doctorate,” and indicate the other degree in the Other degree section.

Under “Name of discipline,” indicate the complete, exact title of your Program of study (e.g. PhD in Psychology – Cognitive Psychology).

For those applying through a Canadian university: This page of the application must be completed before you invite the individual (designated by the Faculty (School) of Graduate Studies at your institution) to scan and upload your transcripts.

Academic, Research and Other Relevant Work Experience

Indicate if you gained the experience during the course of a program of study.

Awards

Scholarships and other awards offered

List only competitive awards based on academic or research excellence and/or leadership or communication abilities. Include NSERC awards and declined awards. You may list up to 10 awards, starting with the most recent.

Proposed Location(s) of Tenure

PGS D applicants

Specify a maximum of three proposed locations of tenure. You may take up your PGS D at any eligible Canadian university. You may also take it up at any eligible foreign university, provided you have received a previous degree in the natural sciences or engineering from a Canadian university.

Note: Under Program of study, indicate the complete, exact title of the proposed program (for example, PhD in Psychology – Cognitive Psychology). Consult the Eligibility Criteria for Students and Fellows for information on eligibility of the proposed program. If you are registered, or intend to register, in a clinically oriented program, you must ensure that you meet NSERC eligibility criteria at the time of application; otherwise your application will be rejected. If you are registered, or intend to register, in a joint program that includes a professional degree (e.g., MD/PhD), your application will be ineligible.

PDF applicants

Specify a maximum of three proposed locations of tenure. If your PhD was granted by an institution outside Canada, only locations of tenure within Canada will be considered.

Justification for Location of Tenure

PDF applicants only

  • All PDF applicants must complete this section;
  • Provide a detailed rationale for your choice(s) for location of tenure;
  • You are not permitted to hold your fellowship at the same university (or its affiliated hospitals, research centres and other laboratories) where you received your doctorate. However, you may request an exception that will be considered by the selection committee. The request must be based on family reasons (e.g., a spouse's career) or scientific reasons (e.g., availability of specialized equipment) that make it extremely difficult for you to leave a particular university. In this case, however, you must change department and supervisor. Given that NSERC may not approve your request for an exception, you are encouraged to include an alternate location for your Postdoctoral Fellowship.
  • You may not hold a Postdoctoral Fellowship with your PhD supervisor, even if your supervisor changes research institutions.

Scholarship/Fellowship Information

In the Scholarship/Fellowship Information page of your application, please indicate your choice by selecting the appropriate field.

PDF applicants

If your application is judged meritorious, indicate if you wish to be considered for a Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Government Laboratories.

PGS D applicants

Detailed information on completing this section is found on the Information page of the application.

Theses Completed or in Progress

In the Thesis Information page of your application, provide the full title and summary of your most recent thesis completed or in progress.

If you are applying for a postdoctoral award, describe your doctoral thesis in this section.

If you are applying for a doctoral award, describe your master’s thesis in this section. If you did not complete a master’s thesis, describe your honours thesis in this section. If you completed neither a master’s nor an honours thesis, you may describe one of your major research projects or papers in this section, or you may describe the work done to date on your doctoral degree. Do not repeat the information provided in the Outline of Proposed Research section.

Keywords/Research Subject Code

Proposed research subject code

In the Key Words/Research Subject Code page of your application, choose the research subject code that most closely corresponds to your proposed research. Consult the List of Research Subject Codes for Scholarships and Fellowships.

NSERC scholarships and fellowships selection committees cover a number of Research Subject Codes within a research discipline. The Research Subject Code entered on the application will determine the selection committee in which the application will be evaluated. NSERC may assign the application to a different committee if it determines that the subject matter is more appropriate for another committee.

Note: For Animal Biology and Psychology applicants:

  • For neurophysiology related to Biological Sciences, select code 5501; and
  • For neurophysiology related to Behavioural Sciences, select code 6308.

Outline of Proposed Research (Attachment)

In the Outline of Proposed Research page of your application, provide the requested information according to the guidelines and format standards outlined in the NSERC On-line Presentation and Attachment Standards. Ensure that the attachment is limited to one page.

Applicants must complete this section themselves.

Provide a detailed description of your proposed research project for the period during which you are to hold the award. Be as specific as possible. Provide background information to position your proposed research within the context of the current knowledge in the field. State the objectives and hypothesis, and outline the experimental or theoretical approach to be taken (citing literature pertinent to the proposal), and the methods and procedures to be used. State the significance of the proposed research to a field or fields in the natural sciences and engineering (NSE).

Your research must be part of an overall research program which lies in a field that NSERC supports. For awards held at universities, your research must be supervised by a faculty member whose own research program lies in a field that NSERC supports. In cases where the proposed research is deemed to fall within the mandate of either the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) or the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), NSERC will not accept the application. If you have received previous funding from NSERC, this does not mean that you are automatically deemed eligible for continued NSERC funding. As you advance in your studies, if the focus of your research changes from the natural sciences and engineering to the health or social sciences and humanities areas, you may no longer be eligible for NSERC support. For important information about the eligible fields of research, refer to the Eligibility Criteria for Students and Fellows.

Note: Proposals that include the use of methodologies, tools, techniques and knowledge from the NSE are not automatically considered eligible for NSERC support. The proposed research must clearly be intended to advance knowledge in the NSE.

In addition:

  • You should not repeat the information found in the “Theses completed or in progress” section, but may refer to it.
  • NSERC expects applicants to write their own research project independently, and that ideas and/or text belonging to others are properly referenced.
  • Include all relevant information in the outline. Do not refer members to URLs or other publications for supplemental information.
  • If the proposed research is a continuation of your thesis, clearly state the differences between work done for your thesis and the research activities outlined in this proposal.

For uploading purposes, all the documents in this section must be saved into a single PDF file.

Justification for Eligibility of Proposed Research (Attachment)

Complete this section if your research is in a discipline that falls under the mandate of more than one federal granting agency (e.g., psychology, management studies, geography, physical education, bio-medical engineering, health sciences, bioinformatics, biostatistics, etc.).

Describe the NSE research challenges of the project on which you propose to work during the tenure of your scholarship or fellowship. Clearly explain what you will be doing and why it should be considered research that is predominantly NSE (to a maximum of one page).

Points to consider:

Consult NSERC's Eligibility Criteria for Students and Fellows and carefully read the Selecting the appropriate federal granting agency and NSERC’s Eligibility Criteria sections for proposed research and programs of study.

Carefully read the Government of Canada’s guidelines on This link will take you to another Web site Selecting the Appropriate Federal Granting Agency. Particular attention should be given to the Government’s Guidelines for the Eligibility of Applications Related to Health and its Guidelines for the Eligibility of Applications in Psychology, if they are applicable to your research.

For uploading purposes, all the documents in this section must be saved into a single PDF file.

If your supervisor is unable to provide you with a Report on the Applicant, you may use this section to provide an explanation.

For uploading purposes, all the documents in this section must be saved into a single PDF file.

Transcripts (Attachment)

A complete application includes a copy of all official and up-to-date transcripts (or other proof of registration in certain circumstances), as described below. The inclusion and completeness of these documents are essential for NSERC staff to determine your eligibility. Your complete set of up-to-date transcripts is also an integral part of the evaluation material reviewed by scholarship and fellowship selection committees.

Important guidelines for all applicants

  • If you are already registered in your program of study at the time of application, you must submit a transcript for this program, regardless of the number of months completed, to demonstrate registration in the program. This requirement also applies to programs of study started in the fall session of the year of application.
  • Official transcripts are defined as transcripts provided to you by the university, not a copy of the Web transcripts.
  • Up-to-date transcripts are defined as transcripts dated or issued in the fall session of the year of application (if currently registered) or after the last term completed (if not currently registered). As new studies may not have been completed, up-to-date transcripts may not include new entries or grades.
  • Unofficial transcripts will be accepted only from PGS D applicants applying through their university and only for programs completed or in progress at the university submitting the application. Unofficial transcripts of any kind (including Web site printouts) will not be accepted in any other instances (for example, from direct applicants).
  • If you are registered in a degree program that does not have any courses, you must still provide an up-to-date transcript to demonstrate registration in your program.
  • All programs of study listed in the application, even if not completed, must be accompanied by an up-to-date transcript.
  • If your university does not provide transcripts, you must submit, in lieu of a transcript, a letter bearing the official university seal/stamp or a letter signed by the Dean of Graduate Studies confirming i) your program of study, ii) your registration status and iii) the fact that the university does not provide transcripts.
  • At its discretion, NSERC can request official transcripts before you take up the award or during your award period, for verification purposes. Failure to provide the transcripts when requested will result in cancellation of the award.
  • Your transcripts must be submitted to NSERC with your application. NSERC will not accept transcripts submitted under separate cover.
  • Transcripts must be scanned in black and white, and all transcripts saved as a single PDF file. The text must be oriented so that it is readable on a computer monitor from left to right without any adjustment by the viewer. You must include one copy of the legend located on the reverse of each transcript, to help the committees and NSERC understand the grading system at your university. Do not scan the legend multiple times.
  • If the transcripts are in a language other than English or French, they must be translated and certified.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your transcripts are complete and legible once uploaded, even if you apply through a university where a university official is responsible for uploading the transcripts. This is particularly relevant for transcripts with security features in place to prevent duplication. In all cases, the applicant is responsible for ensuring that the application is complete by reviewing the final version of the online application before it is submitted to NSERC.

Applications with transcripts that do not respect these requirements and those listed in the relevant section below will be removed from the competition.

PGS D applicants applying through the university

Up-to-date transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate studies must be scanned and uploaded, in the Transcripts - University page of your application, by the individual designated by the Faculty (School) of Graduate Studies at your institution, as follows. First, ensure the Academic Background page of the application has been completed. Then enter the name and e-mail address of the individual designated by the Faculty (School) of Graduate Studies in the Transcripts - University page of your application. Once the information is saved, an e-mail containing the appropriate links will be forwarded to this individual. Finally, ensure that the designated individual at the university has an up-to-date transcript for each and all of the degree programs listed under Academic Background.

Up-to-date transcripts of doctoral studies only must be scanned and uploaded to the application by the applicant in the Transcripts - Direct page of the application.

Reports on the Applicant

Each application submitted to NSERC must be accompanied by two Reports on the Applicant.

The reports must be completed by persons capable of making an informed assessment.

  • One report should be from a person very familiar with your research and other abilities, e.g., current academic research supervisor or industrial supervisor (in the case of co-op students); previous academic research, industrial or USRA supervisor.
  • The second report should be from a person sufficiently familiar with your research and other abilities to provide a meaningful commentary.

Note: A Report on the Applicant cannot be completed by a proposed supervisor unless that person is currently your supervisor or has been your supervisor in the past.

What you should do

Contact your proposed referees to ensure they are willing to complete a report for you. In the Report on the Applicant page of your application, enter the names and e-mail addresses of each of the referees who will be completing a report, as well as the deadline on which you would like the report to be completed. Once the information is saved, an e-mail containing the appropriate links will be forwarded to the referee so that he or she may view your completed application and complete the report. The status of the request can be verified on this page.

This page offers the following functionalities:

Delete: Allows the applicant to delete a report.

Resend: Allows the applicant to send a reminder to the referee.

Unlock: Allows the applicant to unlock the report once it has been completed so changes can be made by the referee, if requested. Once unlocked, you must select the Resend function to resubmit the invitation with the appropriate link to the referee.

You will not be able to submit your application until these reports have been completed and submitted.
