Introducing NSERC Alliance Grants

Changes to partner organization information functionality

NSERC is pleased to announce an update to its On-line System that will simplify how information is collected from the partner organizations on an Alliance grant.

This update will allow applicants to invite their partner organization representative to complete the information online. When completing the Application for a Grant (Form 101), the applicant will provide an email address for the partner organization representative. An invitation with a personalized URL will then be sent to that email address. Once completed by the partner organization representative, the form will be automatically linked to the application. This change will enable:

  • The collection of information about the organization directly from the partner organization representative;
  • Questions that are tailored to the organization’s sector;
  • The confirmation of contributions to the project and agreement with the proposal by the partner organization representative.

This process will be implemented in September, with the precise date to be subsequently announced. Any applications submitted before this date will continue to use the Partner Organization Form in PDF format. After this update, Partner Organization Forms will no longer be accepted as PDF attachments to an Alliance grant application.

First phase of Alliance grants open for applications

NSERC is currently accepting applications to the Alliance grants program for applications that are requesting $150,000 or more annually from NSERC in Option 1.

The Alliance grants program will be phased in gradually. Option 1, for applications requesting less than $150,000 annually from NSERC, as well as Option 2, will be opened at a later date. Please continue to check the website for the latest information and sign up on the Alliance webpage to be added to the mailing list.
