IMPORTANT NOTE: Applicants are advised to prepare their application well in advance to ensure that it is submitted before the deadline, given the large number of applications and requests received by the Fonds at the end of the competition period.
The application form must be completed in English or French.
The following presentation standards are suggested for all documents submitted:
Font: Times New Roman
Size: 12 point
Left and right margins: 1.25 cm or 0.49 in.

To be admissible, scanned copies of documents in PDF format must be legible and must not be read-protected or have special double tab configuration.
Pages in excess of the number permitted in each section of the application will be removed from the application before submission for evaluation.
Any missing documents will render the application ineligible.
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. Any documents that are not required and which are included with the application will not be submitted to the evaluation committee. Applicants will not be notified of any information or documents missing from the application.
Once the application has been submitted, it may not be modified or resubmitted regardless of the transmission date, even if it is before the competition deadline. No documents received after the application deadline will be considered and applications cannot be updated.
As indicated in Section 3 of the CGR, applicants attest that the information provided is accurate and complete and agree to respect the rules and principles set out in the Fonds de recherche du Québec Policy for the responsible Conduct of Research. Applicants authorize their institution to transmit any personal information in accordance with this policy, where applicable. An agreement to that effect is required before submitting the application.
The FRQSC reserves the right to verify the authenticity of all documents and information provided with the organizations concerned.
THE APPLICANT MUST NOT FORGET TO TRANSMIT THE APPLICATION AFTER COMPLETING AND VALIDATING IT.
At any time, applicants can verify in their E-portfolio that their application has been successfully transmitted to the Fonds. The application file in "My forms" must be flagged as "Transmis au Fonds" before the competition deadline. This indicates that the application has been received by the Fonds. All applications received by the Fonds are assessed for eligibility. Applicants will be informed by email, at the latest one month following the competition deadline, of the progress of their application and, if applicable, its transmission to the evaluation committee. The evaluation committee has the right to declare an application ineligible if it considers that the application does not meet the program conditions and objectives.
Applicants whose application package is deemed incomplete or invalid will be notified by email that their application has not been transmitted to the evaluation committee.
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.
