The Early Researcher Awards is a provincial programme that provides up to $100,000 in funding over five years, primarily for students. It is available to faculty members who have received a PhD no earlier than July 1, 2006 and a first academic appointment no earlier than July 1, 2011. Health-related, parental and other leaves extend the window in some cases.
This is a programme that must be matched with a 50% contribution from the host institution. It is therefore essential that applicants contact Justin Patton (firstname.lastname@example.org, 519-661-2111 ext. 88561) in the Research Office before submitting an NOI, to discuss the possibility of a match.
