NSERC E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship

Deadline: June 7

Additional information

Every year, NSERC awards up to six Steacie Fellowships that are held for a two-year period. Successful fellows are relieved of teaching and administrative duties, so that they can devote all their time and energy to research. The Fellowships are held at a Canadian university or affiliated research institution.

Each fellow receives a research grant of $250,000 and will be eligible to submit an application to the Research Tools and Instruments Grants Program for equipment funding related to their research funded by the Steacie Fellowship. The Fellowship normally also includes a contribution of $90,000 per year to the university toward the fellow's salary. As part of the Fellowship agreement, the university is expected to fund a replacement for the fellow's teaching and administrative responsibilities or to enhance the research environment of the fellow's department.
