PromoScience: Call for Applications
|Deadline (Review)/Date limite (Revue)||15 Sep 2018 (Posted: 22 Jan 2019)|
NSERC invites applications that promote the natural sciences and engineering to Canada’s young people, particularly to groups such as girls and Indigenous peoples* that are under-represented in scientific and engineering careers. PromoScience supports activities and content designed for youth in elementary school, high school, or youth in their first year of college in Quebec, and their teachers, and NSERC has now expanded the eligibility to include activities that will encourage Indigenous undergraduate students to pursue graduate studies in the natural sciences and engineering.
NSERC continues to issue a targeted call for applications that focus on resources, tools and professional development for teachers. It is expected that an increased percentage of applications in this area will be supported in consequence. These professional development programs must be outside of accredited courses or degree requirements.
