Award Guidelines

Note - March 2022
Grant Term Extension – COVID-19 Pandemic


To lessen the impact of the pandemic on researchers’ careers and to support all our research award winners, all active CAS grants are now eligible to receive a one-year extension with funds at their current funding level. This includes grants from the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Research Awards Programs, regardless of whether they previously extended.

Contact the CAS office for more details.
