Funding Opportunities

There are many resources to help researchers find and prepare for available funding opportunities.

The ORS funding opportunities calendar details upcoming competitions, including information on application requirements and deadlines. The Support Programs to Advance Research Capacity (SPARC) office provides faculty grant support services for specific major funding programs (e.g., Tri-Council) including internal and editorial reviews, partnership development, strategic workshops and sample grants. Researchers can also contact the Grant Facilitator assigned to his or her faculty or unit for advice and strategy.

External Funding Sources

Most UBC research is funded by external agencies, including government and non-profit foundations. These organizations offer funding programs that award research grants through peer-reviewed competitions, supporting a range of research efforts from individual project grants to large scale, multidisciplinary, inter-institutional team grants. Please consult our calendar of funding deadlines for information on upcoming major competitions, as well as our listing of other current funding opportunities.
