IES InitiativesIES Research Grant Funds

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 2017/18 Environmental Sustainability Research Grants competition is open.

Applicants are required to complete the on-line Environmental Sustainability Research Grants Application Form. Please login to the ROMEO system where you will find more information on the application process and requirements. (
