Internal Research Grant

The purpose of the Brescia Internal Research Grant (IRG) is to support the overall development of faculty research and creative scholarship at Brescia and to enhance and grow faculty researchers’ competitiveness for external funding. The Brescia IRG is intended to provide Brescia faculty members with the resources to:

  • Initiate new research that builds on their current research programs
  • Obtain seed funding for developing research initiatives, in anticipation of applying for funding from external granting agencies (e.g., CIHR, SSHRC, and other funding sponsors)

The Brescia IRG is intended to support distinctive research projects, however, it is not intended to act as a substitute for external funding. Faculty are encouraged to work with the Research Officer to investigate and apply for external funds. [Grant award period: May 1 – April 30]

Updates regarding the 2021-22 BIRG application due date will be posted here.
