The IES posts Research Grant Competitions each year. The intent of these grants is similar to the MRU Internal Research Grants in that they are designed to support faculty in developing their research programs through the funding of:

•    pilot projects,
•    projects designed to lead to larger-scale external funding applications,
•    projects that are not well suited to external funding opportunities.  

Applications for the 2016/17 Environmental Sustainability Research Grants competition is open. If interested, please visit Grant Application Process Page or download the 2016/2017 Grant Application Guidelines Document.
