Salary-Based Research Grants Program
Academic Unit: Inquire with Unit
Memorial Deadline: Friday 1st, February 2019
Salary-Based Research Grants Program (Researcher Self-funded Opportunity)
Competition deadlines: February 1 and October 1 – 5:00 p.m.
This self-funded program opportunity permits, under certain conditions, a researcher to receive a research grant in lieu of their salary, through a mechanism which includes peer review. The grant may be used for all the purposes of a grant-in-aid of research, except salary remuneration for the Researcher. This program covers only research activities and is not intended to cover projects directed at teaching or the development of teaching-related skills.
Grants awarded are treated as T4A income for tax purposes and accordingly, no income tax will be deducted by the University.
- Faculty members or equivalent, and professional librarians, either full-time or part-time, who intend to perform research whether going on sabbatical leave or not, are eligible to apply. Faculty members going on sabbatical leave may, under the terms of the collective agreement, separately apply to the Office of the Vice-President (Academic) for a grant of up to 5% of basic salary. Requests should be made for a Salary-Based Research Grant only if anticipated expenses exceed the 5%.
*Please note that if the deadline date falls on a weekend, applications will be due on the first work day following the deadline.
