Funding Opportunities

One of our core priorities at The Office of Research, Scholarship, and Community Engagement (ORSCE) is the support of researchers in the development of their research proposals and grant applications. We offer one-on-one consultation and draft review services to the faculty of MRU.

We can work with you from idea to proposal submission, or review proposals at any stage of completion. Contact ORSCE Grants and Research Facilitator, Yvonne Kjorlien, at 403.440.8873 or
for help with:

  • Strategic Advice: We can sit down with you one-on-one and discuss your research direction, project idea, funding options and provide strategic direction in your options for funding your research.
  • Grants Development: You have a plan and need to get started on the grant proposal. Contact us - we can provide some direction in how to approach proposal development, provide strategies for some of those particularly tricky areas (budgets, for example) and read provide feedback on drafts. The earlier you contact us in the process, the more we can help.
  • Final Proposal Review: If you submit your complete grant application up to three weeks prior to the external funding deadline, we can provide a substantive review based on the grant competition's evalulation criteria. If you submit after this three-week deadline, we will do our best to provide constructive and substantive feedback depending on the time allowed. If you submit your grant application by the internal hard deadline of one week prior to the external funding deadline, we will provide a brief administrative review of the application.
