Applications now open for the Queen's Research Opportunities Funds

Applications now open for the Queen's Research Opportunities Funds
Sent on behalf of Dr. Steven Liss
I am delighted to announce that the application process is now open for an exciting suite of internal research award programs: the
Queen's Research Opportunities Funds (QROF). In its first year, the QROF will provide up to $1 million to support research excellence at Queen's.
The QROF replaces the existing complement of Queen's internal research awards, which were reviewed in 2014 based on a key recommendation of the Strategic Research Plan (SRP). Developed in consultation with numerous stakeholders across campus, the QROF represents a strategic investment which will provide researchers and scholars the opportunity to accelerate their programs and research goals. 
The QROF consists of four funds:
  •  Research Leaders' Fund - for strategic institutional commitments to aspirational research in support of the university's research strengths and priorities
  •  International Fund - to assist in augmenting the university's international reputation through increased global engagement
  •  Arts Fund - designed to support artists and their contributions to the scholarly community and to advancing Queen's University
  •  Post-Doctoral Fund - to both attract outstanding post-doctoral fellows to Queen's and to support their contributions to research and to the university
Information on each of the funds, including deadlines, the notice of intent, application forms and a detailed FAQ can be found on website of the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research). The QROF brochure is also attached here.
Sincerely yours,
Steven N. Liss, PhD
Vice-Principal (Research)
