Becoming a partner of the FRQNT

Partnerships with the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) generally occur through our grant and scholarship programs.

There are two possible avenues to meeting your research and knowledge needs: you can be a part of one of the FRQNT's existing partnered programs, or you can offer a program in partnership with the FRQNT.
