Deadline: Application forms must be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00 PM Monday April 6, 2020.
The goal of the RISS Program is to provide Education faculty (with grant/tenure or grant/tenure track appointments as Professor, Associate Professor, or Assistant Professor) with the infrastructure support they need to pursue excellent research as defined by the disciplines represented within the departments and school. The RISS Program complements competitive external research grants and internal seed grants by supporting activities that are typically ineligible for support from these sources.
- Applications forms for RISS must be emailed by noon on Monday, October 7th, 2019, Monday, January 13th, 2020, and Monday, April 6th, 2020 to Education Research
- Due to the amount of funds available, applicants are limited to one funded request per academic year (September-August)
- The applicant seeking grant application matching funds must be the Principal Investigator/Applicant on the proposed grant and must note the name and date of the competition to which they are applying. Successful applicants must use RISS funds for the competition noted in the application, or the funds will be forfeited. Applications can be made to subsequent RISS competitions.
- Applicants may request between $500 and $10,000. Please consult the adjudication criteria below when deciding what might be a realistic budget (for example, a $10,000 application might be for RISS matching funds for an external SSHRC Partnership Development Grant application)
- Graduate student salaries should be within the Faculty norms (e.g., $25-30/hr depending on tasks and MA/PhD/postdoc status)
- The DACR adjudicating committee is authorized to reduce funding requests that seem excessive for the stated project/activity
- Budget expenses must be well justified
