• Principle Investigators must be affiliated with a Canadian institution, be autonomous researchers who can supervise or co-supervise students and be eligible to hold TriCouncil funding. This includes tenure stream faculty as well as those who hold an academic or research appointment (such as Adjunct Faculty or an independent researcher). If an applicant is unclear about their eligibility, they should determine this status with their institution’s Office of Research Services.
  • The applicant’s host institution must be eligible to hold Tri-Council funding. Canadian universities and investigators who are successful in applying for MtS funds will be required to sign onto a Network Agreement prior to receiving funds.
  • Non-academic organizations can also apply for funding provided they meet Tri-Council eligibility requirements. For information on applying for tri-council eligibility, go to this website. Another option for non-academic organizations wishing to apply is to collaborate and partner with an eligible researcher (as Principle Investigator) at an eligible academic institution. If you would like assistance in making such a link, feel free to contact us at mtsfunding@yorku.ca
