Postdoctoral fellowships from external agencies

There are several Canadian and international agencies and foundations that can fund postdoctoral research at uOttawa.

External postdoctoral funding sources

External postdoctoral funding sources include the three federal granting agencies: the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Naturally, foreign nationals would benefit from checking first with agencies and foundations in their home country.
