Grant Application Process

IES Research Grants

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.

To be eligible for regular funding, applicant must be full-time Mount Royal University faculty. 

The IES is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2018/19 Environmental Sustainability Research Grants competition. More information regarding the guidelines and eligibility can be found here.
