Funding Opportunities

Looking for assistance with your application or proposal?

The ORSCE now offers in-depth feedback on your grant applications! Please send your entire competed grant application to our Grants and Research Facilitator, Yvonne Kjorlien, (ykjorlien@mtroyal.ca) at least THREE weeks prior to the funding agency's deadline. This will allow time for Yvonne to review your application and for you to revise your application. You will also receive instiutional approvals at this time.

The standard ORSCE deadline applies if you do not wish for feedback on your application: please submit your entire completed application with a Research Activity Form via ROMEO ONE week prior to the external funding agency deadline. 

Research Activity Forms must be submitted via ROMEO for review for all research applications and proposals prior to submission to the external funder, whether of not the external sponsor requires institutional signatures.
