This session will focus solely on NSERC’S doctoral (CGS D/PGS D) and postdoctoral (PDF) programs. The Q&A sessions will be delivered as a WebEx Event and will be supported by a series of informational videos. The first three videos of the series are now available on NSERC’s YouTube channel. These videos are intended to completely replace the presentation portion of the NSERC sessions, allowing NSERC staff and applicants to engage in a in-depth and detailed Q&A session. UBC Awards staff will be available to answer questions pertaining to UBC’s procedures. Participants should watch the videos in advance and come to the Q&A session with specific questions in mind. Graduate program staff and advisors are welcome to participate.
