Posted on: May 8, 2019

Faculty Internal Grants – Seed Grants and Impact Grants

The next deadline for applications to the faculty internal grant is May 15th, 2019. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: As stated in the guidelines and forms, applications are only accepted in the form of one PDF file containing all the documents for the application, sent via email to research@concordia.ab.ca. No other submissions will be accepted or sent for adjudication. Non-compliant applications, if received before noon on May 15th, will be returned to applicants for formatting and resubmission (deadline still applies).

 

Applications & Guidelines

There are two grant streams and separate applications for each stream. Please use the correct application form for the stream your activity represents: Impact Grants for Knowledge Mobilization activities (dissemination) and Seed Grants for short-term research initiatives (projects).

IMPORTANT: CUE does not allow duplicate funding requests. Therefore, applications with significant conceptual and/or budgetary overlap with existing awards, internal or external, will not be accepted. If you have applied for, or are considering applying for additional funds to support the research that you are submitting for consideration for this competition, you are required to disclose it to the Office of Research Services and include this information in the appropriate sections of the application form.

 

Impact Grants
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.

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.

Annual Deadlines

Three competitions are held per year. October 1st | February 1st | May 15th

Adjudication Rubrics

Applications will be evaluated and available funds awarded through a competitive process. The rubric used for assessment is available in the guidelines. The total funding envelope for 2019 – 2020 is set by the institution’s annual budget. Because this funding is limited, the demand for funds normally exceeds the funds available and not all proposals can be awarded.

 

Student Internal Grants

The next deadline for applications to the student internal grant program is pending. Applications are no longer being accepted year-round. Undergraduate students are eligible to apply for up to $1000 per year and Graduate students are eligible to apply for up to $2000 per year.
