Maximizing Funding Success from the Tri-council Granting Agencies:

The NSERC Perspective

Glen Van DerKraak, Department of Integrative Biology

NSERC has an overview of the discovery grant program on their website:

http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/NSERC-CRSNG/Visits-Visites/grants-subventions_eng.asp

TIPS:

Ask to see the grants of successful applicants

Solicit peer review

Sell your science, sell your science, sell your science

two step review process
Two-Step Review Process

Funding

recommendation

Merit assessment

scientific or engineering excellence of the researcher s
Scientific or Engineering Excellence of the Researcher(s)
  • Knowledge, expertise and experience
  • Contributions to research in the NSE
  • Importance of contributions
  • Complementarity of expertise and synergy (for team applications)

TIPS

EXPLAIN YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:

It is not just what you found but the context in which it is important.

Measures of success; use by others, open doors, invitations

Training of HQP is critical

Describe your engagement in the scientific community

merit of the proposal
Merit of the Proposal
  • Originality and innovation
  • Significance and expected contributions to research, and potential for technological impact
  • Clarity and scope of objectives
  • Clarity and appropriateness of methodology
  • Feasibility
  • Extent to which the proposal addresses all relevant issues
  • Appropriateness and justification of the budget
  • Relationship to other sources of funding

TIPS:

Place your work in context: not just what but why it is important

NSERC funds programs and not projects: short term and long term goals

NSERC is not stamp collecting

Be feasible and realistic : explain strengths but also limitations.

contributions to the training of highly qualified personnel
Contributions to the Training of Highly Qualified Personnel
  • Quality and impact of contributions to training during the last six years
  • Proposed plan for future training of HQP in the NSE
    • Describe the nature of the training (e.g., length, specific projects) in which HQP will be involved, the HQP’s contributions and pertinence to the research program proposed.
    • Applicants should discuss the soundness of their plans and the expected outcomes.
  • Enhancement of training arising from a collaborative or interdisciplinary environment (where applicable)

TIPS:

Answer : How will they be trained, why you as an advisor, why Guelph?

What is the evidence that your training makes a difference?

relative cost of research
Relative Cost of Research
  • Determined by the reviewers as Low, Normal or High as compared to the norm for the research areas represented in the applications considered by the EG(s).
  • Factors considered include:
    • salaries and benefits; equipment and/or facilities; materials and supplies; travel; and dissemination.

TIPS

The budget does not make the grant but it could break the grant

be realistic in the NSERC context, NSERC trains HQPs.

Link student costs to specific objectives
