Internal Research Grants – Seed and Impact. February 2021 Call

Posted on: Jan 4, 2021

The Office of Research Services invites all eligible CUE faculty members to submit applications to the Internal Research Grant program, under the February 1st, 2020 call. 

The ORS is working under limited service conditions and is unable to assist applicants in formatting applications to meet the guidelines.

Important changes to CV requirements

Effective on November 18th, 2020, CUE Research no longer accepts CAQC-format or free-form CV for applications for internal grants and other awards. CUE Research will now only accept Common CV-formatted documents as part of an application.

Please consult these resources to prepare a Common CV. We have also prepared instructional videos on this new requirement, which you can download from Alfresco.

CUE Research schedules training workshops for the Common CV, most recently in early December, 2020. Keep an eye on Inside CUE for future workshops.


Applications & Guidelines

Impact Grants are back!

Impact Grants support knowledge mobilization activities that move research knowledge into outcomes and impact in academia and in the community. These funds support short-term, targeted KMb activities such as presentations at conferences, workshops, juried artistic exhibits, oral histories, interactive, digital and video technologies, commissioned reports, knowledge syntheses, and other forms of connecting and disseminating research knowledge.

Impact grants were suspended starting in the May 2020 competition, due to COVID-19. We have resumed this grant stream with some restrictions, which will remain in place until the COVID-19 pandemic has ended. Until further notice, Impact Grants are allowed only for activities that occur online. Applications that include travel or in-person activities will be removed from the competition.

Deadline: February 1st, 2021 at midnight.
Next opportunity to apply: May 15th, 2021


Seed Grants

Seed Grants provide funding for faculty research projects, particularly those that have the potential to lead to applications to external funding agencies. Grants awarded through this fund serve as seed funding to carry out essential developmental work that will be used in developing research programs and preparing applications for external funding opportunities. Seed Grants are intended to build and sustain a vibrant research culture at Concordia University of Edmonton and to develop and support research and innovation, and enhancing CUE competitiveness.

Deadline: February 1st, 2021 at midnight.
Next opportunity to apply: May 15th, 2021
