Discovery Grants COVID-19 with Funds Extension

Grantees in the final funded year of their grant are part of the yearly cohort who will be offered the Discovery Grants COVID-19 extension with funds. Please be advised that eligible grantees for the COVID-19 with funds extension will receive communication directly from NSERC explaining that they will be sent a system-generated email from NSERC. This email will prompt you to access a secure website where you can accept or decline the funded extension. The deadline to submit your response to NSERC is September 15, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. (PST). Accepting this funded extension will automatically disqualify you from applying to this year's Discovery Grants competition. 

Please note that the Discovery Grants COVID-19 extension with funds is only available to active grant holders one time.

For grantees that hold a Northern Research Supplement, you will receive two invitations. You must either accept or decline both invitations from NSERC.
