Relationship Between NSERC Proposals and Other Sources of Funds

There are a variety of funding sources available, including other NSERC programs and grants from government, companies and private sources. NSERC does not restrict researchers from obtaining other sources of funding, but does expect that there will be no duplication of funding for the same research activities. In addition, when research programs or projects are supported by multiple sources, the additional benefits of NSERC support must be justified.

Different NSERC programs have varying requirements and evaluation criteria regarding other sources of funding. Please consult the information provided on the relevant program description page.
