CALL FOR INTERNAL RESEARCH GRANTS (IRG) AND SSHRC EXPLORE RESEARCH GRANTS (SERG)

The IRG and SERG competitions provide research grants of up to $5000 to support stand-alone projects through the funding of fully developed research proposals.

Note: As of 2019, the Internal Research Grants program for social sciences and humanities applicants has been rebranded as the “SSHRC Explore Research Grants” program, due to requirements imposed by the SSHRC Institutional Grants program.  Guidelines for the SSHRC Explore Research Grants program are identical to the Internal Research Grants program.  Therefore, applicants cannot apply for both an IRG and the SERG in the same competition year.

Eligible Applicants: Tenured, Tenure Track, Term and Sessional UPEI Faculty in Arts, Business, Education, Nursing, Science, or Sustainable Design Engineering, and Librarians, who are employed by UPEI at the time of application and for the duration of the award.  A professor emeritus or adjunct professor may apply as co-applicant with an eligible tenure/tenure-track UPEI faculty member.  Please consult the program guidelines for other eligibility considerations.

Program guidelines and application forms can be found here.  The competition deadline is 02-Dec-2019.
