Early Researcher Award deadline for Notice of Intent
June 30, 2017
The Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science (MRIS) has launched Round 13 of the Early Researcher Award (ERA). The ERA program helps promising, recently-appointed Ontario researchers build their research teams of undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, associates, and technicians.
The ERA program will provide funding up to $100,000 for each award (plus $40,000 for indirect costs), and must be matched by an additional $50,000 (cash not in-kind) from the division/department and/or a partner organization.
Researchers interested in applying must submit a short Notice of Intent to apply to the Research Services Office for Institutional sign off. Please submit your NoI to Jennifer Niu (firstname.lastname@example.org). Further details on the program and the NOI form can be found on the funding opportunity page.
Submission of a NoI is not binding and will not be assessed by the Ministry, but will be used for selection of panel reviewers. Note that a MRA is not required at this stage, but will be required at the full application stage.
