Further to the e-mail message that NSERC has sent, please ensure that your application is in submit mode no later than Friday February 17, 2017 by 3pm British Columbia time. Although NSERC has stated that application must be received at NSERC by midnight Ottawa time on February 17 (which is 9pm British Columbia time) ORS staff will be unable to submit applications after 4:30pm.
