General Information about Deadlines for Faculty

This page describes the UTSC Office of the Vice-Principal Research processes for the review and submission of Tri-Council operating grant programs (e.g. CIHR Open Operating Grants, NSERC Discovery Grants, SSHRC Insight Grants).

All proposals are reviewed by the Vice-Principal Research before they are submitted to your Chair/Director for approval through My Research Applications (MRA) and before you submit them through the Council's electronic submission system. See the Deadlines buttons on the upper right of this page for specific instructions and UTSC VPR Office deadlines.

Any comments will be sent to you by email.

Your UTSC department/centre will set earlier internal deadlines for review and approval by your Chair/Director before the Vice-Principal, Research deadline. Please check with your department/centre for its internal deadline!

By the Research Services Office MRA deadline, submit your MRA form for approval by your UTSC department/centre (Chair/Director) and the division (UTSC Vice-Principal, Research) through the My Research - Applications (MRA) electronic review and approval system.

By the Research Services Office grant application deadline, submit your grant application through the applicable Council's electronic submission sytem.
