SSHRC Expired / NSERC Expired

NSERC and SSHRC offer an automatic one year extension for some of their grant programs to allow researchers to conclude any outstanding activities and expenditures (e.g., NSERC Discovery, Insight). If within three months of the end of the extension period, you have not completed the deliverables originally stipulated in the SSHRC or NSERC grant, you may request a one year maximum extension of your use of funds. To do so, please answer the following questions and forward to Madeleine Ibrahim

.Activities to be undertaken;

  • Provide a budget and justification (corresponding to 50% or less of the allocated grant.  Any higher amount is deemed to be an unspent grant and a reimbursement is required.);
