Internal Funding Opportunities

In addition to support from CUPFA’s Professional Development Fund there are a number of interesting internal research funding opportunities available to members through the Office of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies (VPRGS), as well as through faculty-specific competitions.

Other opportunities may become available through the Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic
