University research awards are designed to encourage research at Canadian universities in areas of interest to Imperial Oil's petroleum, petrochemical and energy resource development businesses. These areas include the fields of engineering, environmental, earth, chemical, and physical sciences.

Awards for specific research projects are made to full-time faculty members to support research work carried out by university students under their direction.

Individual awards are normally available in amounts ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 depending on budgets for the proposed research, availability of funds, and potential significance of the research as determined by Imperial.

Awards are made for one year and may be renewed annually for a maximum tenure of three years.
