Research Supervisors are highly encouraged to assist students in completing the application form. 

We have increased the budget for Undergraduate students, who are now eligible to apply for up to $1,500 per year. Graduate students are eligible to apply for up to $2,000 per year.

Completed forms must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to research@concordia.ab.ca. Applications that do not comply with the requirements will be removed from the competition.

The budget of an application is subject to confirmation of eligibility of expenses by the Office of Research Services, prior to adjudication. For a list of eligible expenses consult this webpage.

Eligible activities

Student research grants support direct costs for research activities including research publication fees, expenditures related to research projects, registration fees only for conferences that are held online, or similar activities approved by the Research and Faculty Development Committee. Expenses related to travel for research dissemination at conferences are ineligible until further notice. The sponsoring faculty member is expected to be involved in the research as a co-author.
