The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has announced the latest Discovery Grant Program recipients. Congratulations to all successful applicants in the Faculty of Education.
The NSERC Discovery Grants program assists in:
- Promoting and maintaining a diversified base of high-quality research capability in the natural sciences and engineering in Canadian universities
- Fostering research excellence
- Providing a stimulating environment for research training
The Discovery Grants program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances.
