Faculty of Education Internal Research Grant

September 12, 2017

Purpose:

These awards are to support the cost of research projects of modest scope – for seed money, one-time requests, and projects of short duration. Applications may be made for new research initiatives. While the main purpose is to provide funds for initiating research, requests to supplement existing funding sources will be considered. Travel to conferences will not be considered and should be funded through the travel policy. Separate applications, for the same project, over several years, will receive lower priority than new studies.

Amount:

Maximum $5,000 per faculty member per fiscal year (May 1-April 30). In addition, the study for a previously awarded Internal Research grant must be complete before being eligible to hold another Internal Research grant; researchers may not hold more than one Internal Research grant concurrently. Faculty members who are retired, part-time or seconded to the Faculty are not eligible to apply for these funds.

Deadline:

October 2, 2017, 4:00 p.m.

Submission:

Via email to edu-internalgrants@uwo.ca , or paper copy to Research Office, Room 1161
