Description: The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Discovery Grants Program supports ongoing programs of research in the areas of Natural Sciences and Engineering with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. Discovery Grants are considered “grants in aid” of research, as they provide long term operating funds and can facilitate access to funding from other programs, but are not meant to support the full costs of a research program.
