Change to Internal Research Grant competition
Over the past year, Research Services has been reviewing the various internal research award opportunities. New awards have been added in recent years (SSHRC Institutional Grant fund; Buttedahl-Skene fund; Global Advancement and Diversity Fund; Conference Seed fund); others have been offered through an additional call (Teaching with Technology fund); and others have remained fairly stable (Internal Grants for Research; Professional Development/Scholarly Activity Pool grants).
As a result of the review, there will be a change to the application deadline for the Internal Grants for Research which will shift from the August deadline and September start to an October deadline and December 1 start. Part of the rationale for this shift was feedback from faculty noting that an August deadline is problematic given vacation leave.
We will assess the impact of this change going forward, and continue to welcome faculty feedback on all internal research grant awards. Please contact Research Services staff with any questions.
