Tri-Agency Funding

Collectively known as the Tri-Agency, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) provide a variety of continuously evolving awards for Canadian researchers.

Currently, Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) is eligible to hold NSERC and SSHRC grant funds, and CUE is working on institutional eligibility to hold CIHR grant funds.

The Tri-Agency also provides support for indirect costs of research through the Research Support Fund. For more information about the role of the Research Support Fund at CUE, please visit this webpage.

If you are planning to submit an application to the Tri-Agency, please contact the Office of Research and Innovation (research@concordia.ab.ca) as soon as possible.

CUE publishes and maintains a list of important deadlines for internal and external research funding opportunities.
