Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Arthur B. McDonald Fellowships (formerly known as the Steacie Memorial Fellowships)
Arthur B. McDonald Fellowships (recognized as the Steacie Memorial Fellowships until 2020) recognize early-stage academic researchers in the NSE and support them to enhance their research capacity so that they can become leaders in the field and inspire others. NSERC awards up to six McDonald Fellowships each year. Each fellow receives a research grant of $250,000 over two years; the Fellowship normally also includes a contribution of up to $90,000 per year to the university toward the fellow's salary. Successful fellows are relieved of teaching and administrative duties so that they can devote all their time and energy to research.
Eligibility: Any applicant who holds an NSERC grant and took up their first independent academic position within the last 10 years (on or after June 1 of the year of competition, not counting eligible delays in research) is eligible.
Internal process: Institutional Strategic Awards (ISA) coordinates the internal selection of SFU candidates and leads the development of institutional nominations or endorsements for this opportunity. To promote equity, diversity and inclusion, departments and faculties should ensure that all eligible candidates are considered and given the opportunity to self-identify. To recommend a candidate to the President’s Advisory Committee on Awards, Honours and Prizes, please submit a candidate suggestion form by the internal deadline noted below. For more information, please visit the ISA website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
As this award carries research funding, an SFU Signature sheet and copy of full nomination package will be due to email@example.com no later than 3 business days before agency deadline. Only those candidates who have been recommended by the internal awards committee will advance to submission (see above internal process).
