The purpose of this award is to attract postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) who will be highly competitive for external awards on the basis of their academic performance and research program. Thus, PDFs holding this award are expected to apply for external awards or grants for which they are eligible, including those from provincial or national agencies. It is anticipated that the award will be pro-rated by funding obtained from other sources.

Applicants must provide a letter of support from their research supervisor committing to provide a $25,000 annual component of the award - which can include benefits - until the PDF obtains an external fellowship.

Renewal is contingent upon internal review of, and application for external scholarships, annual review of progress and letter of support from the supervisor.
