Arthur B. McDonald Fellowships recognize early-stage academic researchers in the natural sciences and engineering and support them to enhance their research capacity, so that they can become leaders in their field and inspire others. NSERC awards up to six McDonald Fellowships each year.
If you are an early-stage academic researcher, meaning that you have held an independent academic position for 10 years or less as of June 1 of the year of the competition and currently hold a grant from NSERC, you can prepare a nomination for this award.
An independent academic position is a position that:
- is a university faculty appointment (adjunct, non-tenured or tenured)
- requires that the researcher engage in research that is not under the direction of another individual
- authorizes the researcher to supervise or co-supervise the research of students registered in an undergraduate or graduate degree program, or postdoctoral fellows
Your research must be primarily in the fields of the natural sciences and/or engineering.
