Research and scholarly work are part of the normal duties of UFV faculty. As a permanent teaching faculty, you may request a one-course or equivalent reduction in teaching workload if you have a project which is too substantial to be completed as part of a regular workload.
To be supported for a release, your proposed project must exceed the regular scholarly activities in which you are expected to be involved. Additionally, your project must involve approximately the same amount of work as the course or equivalent teaching workload from which you will be released. This release may be in addition to the release normally provided to Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grant holders.
The annual submission deadline is October 31. Applications are processed in the fall semester preceding the academic year in which the research/scholarly option occurs.
Visit the Research Option and Scholarly Activity information page on the Research, Engagement and Graduate Studies website to learn how to prepare and submit an application.
