Research Grant in Lieu of Salary Application Form Senate Research Committee
  • Description This program permits, under certain conditions, a researcher to receive a research grant in lieu of salary through a mechanism which includes peer review. The purpose of the expenditures proposed must be warranted in the context of the research outlines. The grant may be used for all the purposes of a grant-in-aid of research, but not to supplement the income of the principal researcher. The program covers only research activities and, unfortunately, cannot cover projects directed at teaching or the development of teaching-related skills. When the research grant has been established, the funds are no longer considered to be salary but constitute a research grant which is subject to the regulations of the program and the research-related policies of the University. Specific conditions relating to the program are outlined below.
     
  • Deadline This application form MUST be submitted to the Office of Research Services 2 months before the funds are needed to allow for processing.
     
  • Pre- Award Terms and Conditions 1) Faculty members, either full-time or part-time, who wish to conduct research during any academic year may be eligible.   2) Applications will be reviewed by the Senate Research Committee which are then recommended to the Vice-President (Research).   3) The researcher and appropriate Faculty will be informed by letter of the result of the deliberations. Once an award is made, the Financial Services Office will initiate the payment process as outlined in the award letter. The amount of the research grant will be reflected as a reduction in the researcher's salary and will be reported on an income tax T4A slip. Thus, under this program the researcher's total payment will be divided into two components: a. salary and b. research grant
