The Northern Research Supplements (NRS) program is aimed at NSERC-funded researchers who intend to conduct Discovery research in Canada’s North. Successful applicants will receive a supplement to their Discovery Grant (DG) in the range of $10,000 to $25,000 per year, for the duration of their DG. Awards at the upper end of this range will be made to those with higher logistical costs and to recognize outstanding contributions to outreach, engagement and collaboration with northerners (Note: in the context of this program, “northerner” refers to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members).

Recipients of NRS awards are not restricted to the specific activities described in the application, but must pursue research interests in the North. Only costs associated with working in the Canadian North are eligible expenses.


Value and duration Up to $25,000 per year, for up to five years
Application deadline November 1
