2. Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident;
3. Your project lies north of the southern limit of the discontinuous permafrost zone (see map at: http://arcg.is/1vGHyr; and the other seven circumpolar countries (Finland, Greenland (Denmark), Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and the United States (Alaska); and
4. Your project start date falls within the NSTP Annual cycle of April 1 to March 31. Summer and winter projects are eligible. For projects with a duration less than 21 days, additional justification will be required.

NSTP funds projects on northern topics from all disciplines and in multi-disciplinary fields. NSTP will provide one year of funding for thesis-based research at the undergraduate level, up to two years of funding for thesis-based research at the Masters level and up to three years of funding for thesis-based research at the doctoral level.

NSTP funds are restricted. They are a supplement meant to offset the additional costs of northern research (e.g., transportation and living costs). The NSTP is not intended to be a source of primary support for students pursuing northern research. The money allotted to you during that time must be spent out by the end of the fiscal year.
