Terms and conditions of applying for research administrators

Before you, as a research administrator (representative of the institution), submit applications or other documents to Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) or Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) (“the agency”), you must read and agree to the following terms and conditions.

By approving and submitting the application or other documents, you are certifying that:

  • the institution will abide by the roles and responsibilities set out in the Agreement on the Administration of Agency Grants and Awards by Research Institutions ("the Agreement"), the Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide, and the relevant program literature;
  • as required by the Agreement, the applicant and co-applicant(s) meet the eligibility requirements for the relevant funding opportunity;
  • prior to submission of the application, the institution has obtained written approval from any other institutions involved in the application process;
  • you will not use or disclose any information that you obtain or view on the Research Portal for any purposes other than your participation in the agency’s process; and
  • you understand that the agency reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to terminate or restrict your access to the Research Portal at any time, without notice.

By accepting these terms and conditions, you confirm that you are in full acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and that this electronic acceptance is equivalent to your handwritten signature. You recognize and accept that this agreement applies in full to all applications, documents and communications you may submit, view or obtain electronically or otherwise relating to the Convergence Portal and the operations of the agency.
