Electronic application form (e-form)
Applicants must have a personal identification number (PIN) in order to fill out the application e-form.
The e-form is available on the FRQNT website. It must be completed and sent electronically by the competition deadline. Once completed, applicants can print a copy for their records.
Forms may be completed in English or French. Applicants who submit the form in English must provide a French title for their project.
Required documents must be submitted electronically in the attachment files provided for that purpose in the application e-form. Documents that are illegible or unclear will be rejected.
It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application includes all documents required for the application to be considered admissible.
The applicant must provide the following:
An official transcript (an unofficial electronic version will not be accepted) for all university studies, completed or not (certificate, degree, Bachelor's, Master's, PhD. etc). When equivalences are granted for courses taken at other institutions or in previous programs, transcripts for these courses must be enclosed with the file, including collegial transcripts. For transcripts from outside Canada or the United States, applicants must enclose a letter explaining the grading system used by the institution in question;
The FRQNT considers transcripts issued by the Registrar's Office to the applicants to be official transcripts. Opening the envelope to scan the transcripts will not render them unofficial for FRQNT purposes;
Permanent residents must provide a copy of their Record of Landing or permanent resident card;
Applicants who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must provide:
a copy of their Québec study permit.
Canadian citizens born outside must provide a copy of proof of Canadian citizenship;
A photocopy of a valid Quebec medical insurance card or any other document which proves that the applicant is a resident of Québec within the meaning of the Québec Health Insurance Act;
Acknowledgements of receipt from the editor for all articles submitted and notices received from editors for articles accepted for publication (acknowledgements of receipt for articles already published will not be sent to the evaluation committee).
An invitation letter from the foreign host institution.
Only the e-forms for the 2016-2017 fiscal year and the other required documents will be accepted. No attached material or documents other than those required will be forwarded to the evaluation committee. Files cannot be updated after the deadline for applications.
The FRQNT reserves the right to verify the authenticity of any documents and information provided by contacting the organizations concerned.
Any document submitted in a language other than French or English must be accompanied by a certified translation.
Procedure for submitting required documents
Before the deadline for applications, applicants must submit all required documents in the appropriate attachment file on the application e-form. No reminder will be made and no files can be added after the competition deadline.
