The FRQS offers a number of awards in collaboration with partners. The amounts of funding provided by the FRQS and the partner as well as other funding conditions (i.e. funding period and renewal option) may vary according to the agreements in effect.
Eligible applicants are selected through a three-step process:
Applicants must select partners, by priority order, one or more whose research are in line with the themes of the application in order of preference (see section Partenariats [partnerships] on the form).
The FRQS will send the partners a list of applications. The partners will assess the relevance of the applications based on their interests and research priorities.
The applications will be assessed by a committee of experts or peers. Applications that obtain a score of at least 70% for scientific excellence and which are relevant to the work of one or more partners may be offered partnership funding.
Like all other FRQS awards, the partnership awards are attributed based on merit following a scientific assessment by a committee of experts or peers.
