There are a number of funding opportunities you can apply for. Eligibilty for most if not all is that you have a current and formal affiliation with the university.
All applications must to be submitted 8 business days prior to a funder's deadline - so that reviews and edits can be done before the deadline.
Download our annual Faculty of Education Grants Planner Calendar 2019-2020 for a quick guide to grant deadlines. This year's calendar includes Tri-Council webinars.
You may also want to refer to our SSHRC Quick Reference file when you're deciding on which grants to apply for (and when).
A table of grants and contracts deadlines and submission notes is available - when portals and processes seem confusing :)
