Research, Engagement and Graduate Studies

Opportunities

We update this page as funders notify us of new opportunities or changes to existing listings. Please check back regularly. Researchers receiving funding through one of the federal Tri-Agencies should follow ongoing COVID-19 updates by NSERC, SSHRC, and/or CIHR.

The Research Office is here to help UFV faculty members review and refine their research grant applications and proposals. Per the "internal deadline" column below, please submit your materials to Jerri-Lynne Cameron, Director of Research Services & Industry Engagement, at least two weeks prior to the grant's external deadline to allow adequate time for feedback. She will arrange to meet with you in person or provide comments via email.
