Technology Access Centre grants

How to apply

Colleges applying for a new TAC grant must complete a two-stage application process. The first stage is a letter of intent (LOI). Based on this letter, NSERC will invite selected colleges to submit a full application. The letter of intent and full application are peer-reviewed using the TAC grant merit evaluation criteria. Existing TACs that are up for renewal for an additional five-year term do not need to submit an LOI. Applications for renewal will be evaluated using the same merit evaluation criteria as LOIs and new TAC applications.

Colleges cannot hold more than three TAC grants at the same time. As a result, colleges with three active TAC grants cannot apply for a new TAC grant.

For colleges and CEGEPs in Quebec, proposals are limited to a maximum of $100,000 per year.

Applications must be submitted through the Convergence Portal. See the TAC LOI and TAC application instructions for more detail.
