About the ERA Program: 

The Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science (MRIS) has issued the call for proposals for Round 14 of the Early Researcher Awards (ERA) competition.


The ERA program helps promising, recently-appointed Ontario researchers build their research teams of undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, associates and technicians.


The ERA program encourages applications from all disciplines.

Proposals will be evaluated on the excellence of the researcher (40%), the quality of the research (30%), the development of research talent (20%), and the strategic value for Ontario (10%).

Matching funds are required for this program. Also, to be competitive, applicants must have a strong history of peer-reviewed funding, and must be able to demonstrate academic independence from previous supervisors and the benefits of their proposed research to Ontario. Therefore, it is advised that you meet with your Department Chair and Associate Dean Research to review your CV and secure matching funds.


More Information:

If you have any questions regarding the ERA program, please contact Pamela McIntyre, Assistant Director, Development, at or extension 23713.
