Strategic Partnership Grants for Projects

As a result of extensive consultations with the community on NSERC 2020, NSERC has added a Letter of Intent (LOI) stage to the application process for the Strategic Partnership Grants for Projects, starting with the 2017 competition cycle. The LOI stage will be mandatory for all applications to Strategic Partnership Grants for Projects (SPG-P). Following an evaluation by the Strategic Projects Selection Panels, a select number of LOIs will be invited to submit full applications. This process will reduce the effort of the research community in preparing applications and result in a higher success rate overall.
