Notification of Intent to Apply for a Discovery Grant

The Office of Research Services (ORS) would like to remind researchers who are considering applying for a NSERC Discovery Grant (Deadline: November 1, 2018) to complete the Notification of Intent to Apply (Form 180) which is due at NSERC by August 1st, 2018 by 8:00 p.m. (ET)
Please note that Form 180 is mandatory.  Applicants who do not submit a NOI cannot submit a full application.  NSERC will not accept any NOI after the deadline.  In addition, Form 180s do not need to come through ORS but should be submitted directly to NSERC. 
Application  Process – Research Portal and Canadian Common CV (CCV)
You must submit your NOI and the NSERC version of the Canadian Common CV (CCV) using the Research Portal.  Refer to the instructions on how to complete the NOI and CCV. We encourage you to start completing your CCV early, as it can be time-consuming to populate the fields the first time.
