Discovery Grants — Applicant Categories Description The Discovery Grants Program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects.

These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances. As a grant in aid of research, Discovery Grants are not meant to support the full costs of a research program and they can facilitate access to funding from other programs. NSERC recognizes that, while being of a grant in aid nature, Discovery Grants must be sufficient to support a program of quality research that can have a meaningful impact on the field of study. This provides researchers with the flexibility to pursue promising research avenues as they emerge and the opportunity to address higher-risk higher reward topics.

Researchers can use their grants to participate in collaborative efforts. The Discovery Grants Program assists in: promoting and maintaining a diversified base of high-quality research capability in the natural sciences and engineering in Canadian universities; fostering research excellence; and providing a stimulating environment for research training. This can be a tenured, tenure-track or lifetime professor emeritus position; or a paid or unpaid term or contract position of no less than three years.

The position must be finalized no later than six 6 weeks following the competition deadline of November 1, The position must require the individual to engage in research that is not under the direction of another individual; and The position must authorize the individual to supervise or co-supervise the research of students registered in an undergraduate or graduate degree program, or postdoctoral fellows e. Researchers can apply for and hold only one Discovery Grant at a time.

Researchers who hold a Discovery Grant cannot reapply for another Discovery Grant until the last year of their current award. Researchers are encouraged to indicate their sex in the Identification section of the CCV.
