Since 2010, NSERC has adopted new ways of communicating information about program updates and application procedures to university administrators and to prospective applicants for grants and scholarships. Most of the formerly scheduled Grants Information Sessions, Scholarships and Fellowships Information Sessions, and NSERC/SSHRC/CIHR Scholarships and Fellowships Regional Meetings have been replaced with other resources and materials found in the Professors and Students and Fellows sections of this Web site.
Researchers, students and administrators can access these resources 24/7 at their convenience, rather than attending a single session that may not fit into their schedules. NSERC staff remain available to respond to specific questions.
Representatives of NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR will continue to conduct Financial Review and Investigation Visits to ensure the administration and use of grant funds by researchers and institutions conform to the requirements found in the Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide.
