The NSERC Perspective
Glen Van DerKraak, Department of Integrative Biology
NSERC has an overview of the discovery grant program on their website:
Ask to see the grants of successful applicants
Solicit peer review
Sell your science, sell your science, sell your science
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
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.
Answer : How will they be trained, why you as an advisor, why Guelph?
What is the evidence that your training makes a difference?
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
