Research Events Program

The Research Events Program is designed to support events that promote research in the Faculty of Social Sciences: for example, book launches, receptions in honour of an award recipient, promotion of research in the community and other promotional activities of new research initiatives. The recipient is expected to acknowledge the Faculty’s financial support in the program, the promotional material and resulting publications, if any. The Vice-Dean, Research, will award these grants based on the available budget. Normally, grants will be in the range of $250 to $500.
