Eligible universities receive three-year allocations based on 600 total nominations per research granting agency (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC).
These three-year allocations have been determined for the 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15 competitions. (Note that the first set of triennial allocations was calculated for the 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12 competitions.)

The distribution of allocations among eligible universities is based on the following method: For Canadian universities that have a doctoral-level program in the subject areas supported by one or more of the granting agencies, the calculation is based on the sum of the three-year rolling funding average used for the Canada Research Chairs calculations (fiscal years 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10), and the payments made under the respective granting agencies for the agency-specific doctoral awards, the Canada Graduate Scholarships doctoral awards, and the Vanier awards for the three most recent fiscal years (2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11).
Universities have the flexibility to submit as many applications as they wish in any given year, within their maximum three-year allocation per granting agency. Universities cannot exceed their three-year allocations or transfer allocations between agencies.
