Student Research Grants​

Concordia University of Edmonton provides opportunities for funding to support collaborative student-professor research activities.

For all application forms, please send an email to research@concordia.ab.ca and request an updated application form.

Allocation of funds to students for research purposes is governed by the following policy:

  1. All students registered at Concordia University of Edmonton are eligible to apply for a Student Research Grant from a special research fund established for this purpose, providing their application is sponsored by a permanent member of faculty and the appropriate Department. A limited number of grants shall be available each year. The total amount available from the fund for all such grants in any given year shall be limited by an allocation from yearly budgeted research funds.
  2. Research grants shall be adjudicated by the Research and Faculty Development Committee and awarded on the basis of merit.
  3. Student research grants support direct costs for research activities such as travel for research dissemination at conference, research publication fees, research projects, or similar activities approved by the Research and Faculty Development Committee. Normally the sponsoring faculty member would be expected to be involved in the research as a co-author.
  4. In evaluating applications, the Research and Faculty Development Committee may; 1) authorize the grant as requested, or 2) authorize a reduced grant, or 3) reject the application.
  5. Graduate students are expected to apply first to the Alberta Graduate Students Travel Award.
  6. The disposition of individual applications and decisions about the allocation of research funds shall be the responsibility of the Research and Faculty Development Committee. Any Committee member who has sponsored a pending application will not participate in the discussion and decision on the allocation of funds for that application. The Committee Chair may approach the Department for an alternate to replace the member who is temporarily withdrawing on grounds of conflict of interest. An additional advisory member may be appointed to the Committee by the Chair to consider proposals outside the expertise of existing Committee members.
  7. Students are limited to one successful application in any 12-month period. Students in receipt of grant funds from other sources to support the proposed activity are not eligible to apply.
  8. Research Supervisors are encouraged to assist students in completing the application form.

The deadline for applications to the Student Internal Grant program is March 15, 2019. 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.
