Research Award/Prize Opportunities – Sep to Dec 2022

Candidate suggestions for institutional nomination or endorsement are being sought for the following major external research award/prize opportunities with external deadlines between September and December 2022. 

Institutional Strategic Awards (ISA) coordinates the internal selection of nominees, institutional endorsements, and/or external expert reviews of draft nomination packages through Universities Canada's Global Excellence Initiative. To promote equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), departments and faculties should ensure that all eligible candidates are considered and given the opportunity to self-identify (please see the Canada Research Chairs' EDI practices). To recommend a candidate to the President's Advisory Committee on Awards, Honours and Prizes, please submit a candidate suggestion form by the internal deadline. Suggestions received after the internal deadline will still be considered, but we cannot guarantee in which competition year a candidate will be reviewed or nominated. For more information, please contact awards@sfu.ca.

Additional research award opportunities in your topic of interest may be found in the Funding & Awards Opportunities database.
