Funding Opportunities

Click on the categories below to find funding opportunities that match your research interests.

For external award competitions, Nipissing's internal deadline to submit a draft application via Romeo is 3 weeks prior to the sponsor's deadline. This gives the Research Office time to review your submission, provide feedback, request any matching funds required from NU, and obtain the required approvals.

Contact research@nipissingu.ca for any questions you might have about applying for awards.

Internally-Administered Awards

The Office of Graduate Studies & Research sends callouts for most internal award competitions to faculty via email. For more information, follow the links below or contact research@nipissingu.ca
