Subatomic Physics (SAP) Discovery Grants Research Tools and Instruments Grants Program

SAP-RTI grants are awards that assist buying or developing research equipment that costs more than $7,000. SAP-RTI grants are divided into three categories, according to the total net cost of the equipment (before taxes, customs and importation fees, transportation and shipping charges, assembly and installation costs). These categories are:

  • SAP-RTI grants – Category 1: $7,001 to $150,000;
  • SAP-RTI grants – Category 2: $150,001 to $325,000;
  • SAP-RTI grants – Category 3: more than $325,000.

Under Category 1, SAP-RTI grants are one-year awards. In exceptional cases, multi-year requests will be accepted. The onus is on the applicant to clearly explain the rationale. Under Category 2 / 3, SAP-RTI grants are typically multi-year awards.

Eligibility: In addition to NSERC’s Eligibility Criteria for faculty, applicants and co-applicants must each currently hold or be applying for one of the following NSERC research grants at the time of application: Subatomic Physics Discovery Grant, Discovery Development Grant, Strategic Partnerships Grants, Collaborative Research and Development Grants, Canada Research Chairs, Canada Excellence Research Chairs, or Canada 150 Research Chairs.
