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. 

The standard ORSCE deadline applies if you do not wish for feedback on your application. 

Standard ORSCE deadline: A Research Activity Form must be submitted via ROMEO one week prior to the external funder's deadline. The Research Activity Form must include the full and complete grant application (or LOI, NOI, etc.) for review, whether of not the external funder requires institutional signatures. A Research Activity Form must be submitted for each stage of the funding process, such as LOI, NOI, etc.
