The college researcher must apply for a teaching release and statutory supplement in conjunction with a "parent" funding application submitted to one of the following programs:
Concerted Actions Program
Research-Creation Support Program – Team Project component
Strategic Clusters Program
Research Team Support Program
Research Infrastructure Support for Social Sector University-Affiliated Centres and Institutions Program
Before applying, the applicant must create a user account on the Fonds website, if this has not already been done. Individuals who already have a Fonds personal identification number (PIN) have direct access to a FRQnet account and must update their profile in the E-portfolio.
Applications submitted under the Concerted Actions Program, Research-Creation Support Program – Team Project component, Research Team Support Program and the Research Infrastructure Support for Social Sector University-Affiliated Centres and Institutions Program must be submitted via the form created in the applicant's FRQnet E-portfolio. An example of this form is provided in the Toolbox under Program to Release College Researchers from their Teaching Duties (coming soon).
For applications submitted under the Strategic Clusters Program, it is the responsibility of the principal investigator of the centre or network in question to complete the "Statutory Supplement" and "Release from Teaching Duties" sections of the Strategic Clusters application form on the eRegroupement platform for any college researchers with the role of co-investigator in the application.
COMMON CANADIAN CV
The Fonds requires the Common Canadian CV and the PDF Detailed Contributions file to be included in the appropriate section of the E-portfolio. The applicant must complete the Fonds Société et culture version of the Common Canadian CV, update this document within 12 months prior to the competition deadline, and complete the Detailed Contributions file in due form. The documents Preparing a CV for the Fonds and Detailed Contributions attachment, available in the program's Toolbox, can be consulted as needed.
THE APPLICANT MUST NOT FORGET TO TRANSMIT THE APPLICATION AFTER COMPLETING AND VALIDATING IT.
ATTENTION: Under this program, the Fonds requires the approval of the managing institution (college). It is the applicant's responsibility to find out the internal deadline for submitting applications set by his or her managing institution and to ensure that the application is transmitted to the Fonds before the deadline of the competition associated with the application*.
At any time, applicants may verify the transmission status of their application in the "My forms" section of their E-portfolio:
The form will be flagged "Transmis à l'établissement" once the applicant has transmitted the application to the managing institution;
The form will be flagged "Transmis au Fonds" once the managing institution has transmitted the application to the Fonds.
An incomplete application that does not contain the information necessary to establish eligibility or which cannot be evaluated will be deemed invalid by the Fonds. No document that is not required will be submitted to the evaluation committee. Elements missing from the application will not be requested. No document received after the application deadline will be considered and applications cannot be updated.
Throughout the application process, applicants are encouraged to check that no correspondence from the Fonds has ended up in the "junk" or "spam" folder of their email Inbox.
* This requirement does not apply to applications submitted under the Strategic clusters program.
