Deadline: September 20, 2024 (applications open August 30, 2024)

A Research Support Fund of $500,000 allows us to provide individual awards of up to $1,000 to bargaining unit members who are active in research and who do not have access to significant alternative funding, such as Research Trust Funds, gifts, external research grants, etc. The funds can also be used for reimbursement of eligible expenses that are expressly disallowed by their alternative funding sources. Awards are made by the university administration in response to applications from bargaining unit members that indicate the proposed use of the requested funding (from Article 26.6.1 of the 2020-24 MSP Collective Bargaining Agreement).
