This is a friendly reminder that NSERC Discovery Grant NOIs, including completed CCVs, are due to NSERC by August 1st, 8:00 p.m. (ET).  You can access the NOI at and the CCV at  NSERC does not accept NOIs after the deadline.

As you begin to prepare your NSERC NOI and the full application there are a number of resources on the NSERC website and internally at UWinnipeg that we encourage you to take advantage of. 

Internally there are a number of successful NSERC DG holders who are willing to review your application, sit down and talk to you about the application process, provide tips for preparing the application, etc.  If you are interested in being connected to someone inside – or outside – your department please let the Research Office know and we will help facilitate this. 

Externally, NSERC has some great resources that we encourage you to read before you start writing your application.  They are all found in the NSERC Discovery Grant Information Centre (  Here you will find resource videos, the peer review manual (read it!), selection committee information (including members), and the merit indicators used to review applications.

The internal deadline for the full proposal will be Tuesday, October 10th.  If you would like a more comprehensive internal review by a colleague we encourage you to have the application ready by Monday, October 2nd  If you are interested in being matched with an internal reviewer please let the Research Office know shortly after you submit your NOI.
