2015 Quotas

Since 2013, NSERC has adopted a quota system that limits the number of applications per institution.

  • NEW: NSERC's RTI quota for Queen's for fall 2015 submissions is 18
  • The 2015 allocation per faculty will be determined soon, but will probably be close to the 2014 for the 19 proposals we could submit last year, which was:
    11 applications for the Faculty of Arts and Science6 applications for the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and 2 application for the Faculty of Health Sciences.
  • September 15 2015 (tbc): internal deadline for the submission of RTI proposals
  • Committees appointed by each Faculty will conduct an internal review of submissions from researchers within their Faculty to determine which applications will be submitted to NSERC as part of the quota. Faculty internal selection committees will take into consideration the same criteria that will be used by the NSERC multi-disciplinary selection committees.

   A document with a detailed description of the 2015 Queen's internal process for RTI proposals will be forthcoming soon.
