Funded Research

Memorial University's Research Strategy 2023-2028 sets the vision, mission and core principles for research at Memorial and identifies the goals and objectives necessary to achieve success. Its development marks a significant step in Memorial's continued growth and evolution as a research-focused institution. As an aspirational document, it pushes us to pursue, support and celebrate research excellence in all its forms at Memorial.

In recent years within the School of Social Work, there has been a significant growth in the amount of successful research and public engagement funding, as well as an increase in the number of internal and external funding sources awarded. This demonstrates the positive direction for the School of Social Work towards Research and Community Engagement activities.

Key factors have contributed to this growth; such as the new funding opportunities created through the Office of the VP Research and the Office of Public Engagement, support of a Grants Facilitator within the school, and increased supports at the Office of Research Grant and Contract Services.
