Dean's Graduate Research Fund
Acknowledging the significant contributions of graduate student research, the Dean's Graduate Research Fund encourages and supports graduate students conducting research that addresses complex, critical issues facing society. Thematic priorities will vary from year-to-year.
For the 2021-22 academic year, the Dean's Graduate Research Fund is providing funding for research expenses to support graduate student research activities related to issues of systemic and structural racism, decolonization, reconciliation, critical race theory, and the impact of policies and social processes on marginalized communities. The fund is open to research from any disciplinary, theoretical and/or methodological perspective exploring these issues.
The application window for 2021-22 is now closed.
Examples of potential expenses that a student might expect to incur related to their research are as follows: incentives for participants; materials and supplies; accommodation costs for participants (e.g. travel, interpreters, etc.); costs associated with childcare; and/or to cover costs of registration for, and travel to, scholarly conferences associated with the dissemination of research or other knowledge mobilization activities.
Applications are reviewed and assessed by a selection committee established by the Dean, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences and includes faculty from across the College.
Questions and completed applications are to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application form may be available in alternative formats if requested.
