Research Grants and Services

Research Grants

There are any number of sources for research support which are available to faculty members, both external to the University and provided or administered by SFU.

The major granting councils can be found online:

SFU’s listing of current funding opportunities, which includes current competitions for some of the above, can be accessed here.

During research terms and study leaves, members may also arrange for a portion of salary to be treated as a research grant for tax purposes.

New faculty members in tenure-track appointments may also want to investigate President’s Research Start-Up Grants.

Research Support Services

SFU also provides support for researchers in the seeking of and application for funds from external sources.

For overall support, the Office of Research Services is your starting point.

Grants facilitators, liaison officers and other supports are available, and can be accessed here.
