Each year, NSERC awards up to six, two-year E.W. R. Steacie Memorial Fellowships to scientists at a Canadian university or affiliated research institution. The Fellows are relieved of teaching and administrative duties so that they can devote all their time and energy to research. The Fellowship normally includes a contribution to the university in the amount of $90,000 per year toward the fellow's salary.
Candidates should have successfully defended their doctoral thesis within the last 12 years (i.e., 2005 or later) and hold a grant from NSERC. Parental leave taken for child bearing and rearing is not counted as part of the 12-year period; however, such periods must be identified in the letter from the nominator.
