Funding & Awards
Procedures and Deadlines
All funding applications must be signed and approved prior to submission to the funding agency. The process is as follows:
- Submit your completed grant application or contract along with a FAAF via email for signing to your Department Head (check with your department regarding any departmental deadlines).
- Submit the FAAF and application to the Faculty of Science at firstname.lastname@example.org for signing by the Associate Dean (Research) by 4:30PM TWO business days in advance of the ORS deadline.
- After signing, the Dean’s Office will forward your application directly to ORS where it will be assigned to the appropriate contact. Applications are typically due to ORS by 4:30PM FIVE business days prior to the agency deadline unless otherwise noted in the Upcoming Major Funding Opportunities site or in the ORS Newsletter. Major tri-agency applications (e.g. NSERC Discovery Grants, NSERC RTI, CIHR Project Grants are due TEN business days prior to the agency deadline).
Review & Support
The Faculty of Science offers support for researchers in identifying potential funding sources and preparing grant applications. Faculty members are encouraged to contact the Research Facilitator & Business Development Officer for information on funding programs and for review of application materials.
