Funding Opportunities

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. 


TOOLS

Download our annual Faculty of Education Grants Planner Calendar 2018-2019 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 :)

The Faculty offers an internal Research & Development (R&D) grant twice a year:

Like all other funding applications, please review your application with the GFO. Calls announcing the R&D are sent out by email well in advance of the deadlines (Febuary 1st and August 1st respectively). 


Memorial University

*If the deadline date falls on a weekend, applications will be due on the first work day following the deadline.

A comprehensive list is available in Memorial's Research Funding Database with deadlines and application forms. Another database to consult or cross-reference is Humanities and Social Sciences Research Funding Tracker.


Public Engagement Funds

Each year, Memorial University offers Public Engagement grants managed by the Office of Public Engagement. 


Tri-Council (SSHRC, CIHR, NSERC)

Tri-Council funding competitions are described and communicated through the TriCouncil websites but also through Memorial's Research Funding Database. You can sign up to be notified of database updates. 


Foundations 

There are a number of foundations in Newfoundland, Atlantic Canada, Canadian and international foundations whose mandate includes funding education research. To review potential funders, schedule a meeting with your GFO. HSS maintains a Grant Tracker that includes foundations; be sure to check it.
