Scholarly activity and research option funding provides permanent teaching faculty the opportunity to apply for a one-section course reduction in teaching load when they have a project which is too substantial to be completed as part of their regular workload.
Faculty may also apply for funding to support approved scholarly projects when there is evidence that the project cannot be undertaken unless they receive additional funding to supplement what is available to them (e.g. external grants, etc.).
Faculty who hold a major grant receive one release and are required to fill out the Research Options for Grant Holders form, and submit it electronically to ROSA.email@example.com. NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR applicants may apply for a release that, if approved, they may take if they are not successful in their Tri-Council application.
If you would like assistance with your application, email Rosa.firstname.lastname@example.org
