NSERC funding for science promotion

Is promoting science your passion? Take advantage of the following great opportunities from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

Nominate an individual or a group for an NSERC Award for Science Promotion. The nomination deadline is November 25, 2018.

Apply for an NSERC PromoScience Grant. The application deadline is September 15, 2018.

NSERC invites applications that promote the natural sciences and engineering to Canada's young people, particularly to groups such as girls and Indigenous peoples that are under-represented in scientific and engineering careers. A targeted call continues for applications that focus on resources, tools and professional development for teachers.

New this year: NSERC has expanded the eligibility to include activities that will encourage Indigenous undergraduate students to pursue graduate studies in the natural sciences and engineering, and has lifted the departmental restriction on multiple awards for post-secondary institutions.
