Applied Research Tools and Instruments grants
Notifying NSERC about changes
ARTI grants must only be used to purchase the specific type of equipment for which the grant was awarded. Grantees who wish to purchase equipment different from that specified in the application must obtain written permission from NSERC prior to its purchase by contacting email@example.com. Grantees may, however, buy a model different from that requested in the application without prior approval.
The administering institution must complete a Grant amendment form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org (with CC to email@example.com) to inform NSERC of administrative changes such as:
- Deferral of grant instalment
- Extension period for the authority to use grant funds
- Continuing eligibility
- Changes to individuals on the grant team
- Termination of a grant
For additional information on administrative changes, consult Part 6: Administrative changes of the Tri-agency guide on financial administration.
Extension of grants
A one-year time extension to use the grant funds beyond the grant end date is automatically provided for all ARTI grants. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information on grant extensions.
