How to Apply

The Office of Research Services (ORS) treats the SSHRC Insight Grant, the NSERC Discovery and NRS Grants, and the CIHR Project Grant differently from all other external competitions. For these competitions, the NOI does not require an ORS checklist and can be submitted directly to the agency portal without Institutional review.
