Upcoming Major Funding Opportunities

Below are a number of upcoming major funding opportunities available to UBC researchers.

During major competition periods (February to April and mid-August to November) and for all US funding proposals, ORS requires a minimum of five (5) working days in advance of the competition deadline to allow for proper administrative review. Otherwise, ORS requires two (2) full working days in advance of the sponsor competition deadline.

Please read more about submitting a proposal, including administrative review requirements and timescales, and also see our listing of other upcoming funding opportunities.

Additional funding opportunities are shared on the Integrated Calendar of Agency and Interagency Funding Opportunities from the Canada Research Coordinating Committee.
