The Research Accelerator Grant program provides one-time funding to mid-career and senior researchers with established research programs and who currently hold Tri-Agency grant(s). The purpose of this funding is to accelerate the initial stages of a new research area by leveraging the existing Tri-Agency support and allowing researchers to “make the leap” to larger external grant values.
Researchers who intend to apply for Research Accelerator funding should contact the Associate Dean Research, Steve Bird, for proposal development guidance.
