THE UofA COMMON APPLICATION FORM MUST BE USED TO APPLY FOR BOTH THE UofA NORTHERN RESEARCH AWARDS and NSTP grants.
Submit both the UofA Common Application & NSTP Online Application.
Grants are meant to help offset the higher or additional cost of conducting research in northern and/or remote areas; the budget should reflect this.
Collaboration is encouraged for cost-efficiencies; members of research teams working on individual projects attached to a research program should coordinate multiple applications. Applicants must obtain all necessary signatures and provide ethics statements, apply for research licenses and permits, and undertake all consultations with all relevant communities and organizations for the project.
Supervisors should assist students in completing their application.
