SEED Research Grants are provided to faculty members for a significant new initiative or a new development in an existing research program. It is expected that normally at least 50% of the funding will be used to support graduate students as research assistants.

The Elliott/Upitis/Bamji/Hajee Travel Fellowship is awarded to Queen’s Education faculty members for study outside Canada in the field of teacher education or related fields. Awards may also be made to faculty members from outside Canada to enable them to come to Queen’s Faculty of Education to work with Queen’s Education faculty members and students in the field of teacher education or related fields.

University Research Services & External Funding

Staff members are available to act as a liaison with University Research Services (URS) and to assist with applications for other University and external funding opportunities.

URS administers various Queen’s University initiatives as well as external funding opportunities. Its website provides useful information on funding sources and submission of proposals. Faculty can sign up for the URS Funding Opportunities Distribution List and search its archives. Faculty can also view their Funding Opportunities Chart.

Queen's University is a member of the Community of Science (COS), an international research network that covers the humanities and the physical, social, and life sciences. The COS has an extensive database, and funding alerts link the expertise profile of the user to relevant news announcements which are then provided by email. URS gives workshops on the use of the database and funding alerts.

The Assistant to the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research forwards relevant messages from the URS and COS lists to graduate students.
