NSERC Science Promoters program – applications due on September 15th

Posted on: Aug 17, 2020

NSERC invites applications for initiatives 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. Taking equity and diversity into account, NSERC may support additional meritorious applications that focus on under-represented groups if sufficient funds become available. PromoScience supports activities and content designed for youth in elementary school, high school (including those in the equivalent first year of college in Quebec) and their teachers, and activities that will encourage Indigenous undergraduate students to pursue graduate studies in natural sciences and engineering.


Call for applications

Application deadline: before 8:00 p.m. (ET) on September 15. If the deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, your application must reach NSERC before 8:00 p.m. (ET) the following working day.
