The Faculty of Education, UWO announces a special request for proposals for its Internal Research Grant program. Additional funds (approx $5350) are available for distribution from this fund. If several requests for funds are deemed fundable the committee may decide to award an amount less than the maximum allowable ($2,500).
From the guidelines: “Surplus: In the event that the funding awarded is less than the amount available in the budget, the Research Committee will consider other options for awarding the funds such as running a second competition during the fiscal year, providing seed funds to those researchers who were unsuccessful in applications for external funding, or other research possibilities.”
Deadline: August 31, 2010, 4:00 p.m. (for a decision by October 1, 2010)
Amount: up to $2,500 over one year (must be spent by April 30, 2011)
Description: These awards are to support the cost of research projects of modest scope (seed money, one-time requests, and projects of short duration). Preference will be given to probationary faculty.
Eligibility: The fund is restricted to faculty members within the Faculty of Education. Part-time or seconded faculty are not eligible to apply. Faculty may hold only one Internal Research & Development Grant annually.
Guidelines and applications available at: http://www.edu.uwo.ca/Research/internalfunding.html
Only those applicants who are successful will be required to complete ROLA.
