The National Research Council of Canada has announced that its support for research at Canadian universities in 1959–60 reached a record total of $9.37 million, representing an increase of $2.62 million over the previous academic year. Research grants to university staff members amounted to nearly 80 percent, 450 scholarships and fellowships for graduate students accounted for another 14 percent of the total, and the remainder was expended in support of journal publication, contributions to scientific organizations, and administrative costs. Research grants are made only to full‐time staff members of Canadian universities. Scholarships are available both to Canadians and foreign nationals who are studying at Canadian universities. Post‐doctoral fellowships are granted for the support of Canadian scientists studying outside the country and to aid foreigners studying in Canada.
