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. These programs are designed to complement and leverage external funding opportunities.

Part-time faculty members who are actively involved in research may apply  for Accelerator Program Funding and Aid to Research-Related Events. Matching funds are accepted but not required. 

Accelerator Program

The Seed and Accelerator Funding Program grants are awarded for individual projects (Stream 1) and for team projects (Stream 2).  Requests must include matching funds.  

Aid to Research-Related Events

The ARRE grants support two types of projects: Events (e.g. visiting scholars/artists, speaker series, conferences, and public lectures) and Dissemination (e.g. workshops, publications, exhibitions).

External Funding Opportunities

 Affiliate Faculty Appointments

Part-time faculty members are eligible to be appointed as Affiliate faculty without losing their Part Time status through an agreement between the University and the Concordia University Part time Faculty Association.

Affiliate faculty positions provide a means for Concordia University to recognize accomplished and qualified individuals who are able to make significant contributions to the teaching and research endeavors of the University by virtue of their professional expertise and scholarship.

Affiliate faculty may carry out collaborative research with full-time faculty at Concordia, co-supervise graduate students along with a full-time faculty member, and apply for and hold research funding from external research agencies such as SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR, FQRSC, FQRNT, and FRSQ.
