NSERC has issued its call for nominations for 2004 Steacie fellowships.
Each year, NSERC awards up to six of these fellowships to outstanding

careers, already enjoy a reputation for original research. Fellowships
are valued at $90,000 a year for two years and are provided to the fellow’s
institution to cover salary, replacement of teaching and administrative
responsibilities, or the enhancement of the research environment of the
fellow’s department. Candidates should have obtained their doctorate
within the last 12 years and hold a grant from NSERC. Further information
is available at www.nserc.gc.ca/programs/steacie/cfn_e.htm.
