Telfer School of Management University of Ottawa

Research Event Grant

An applicant can request up to $5000 towards the costs of organizing an academic event hosted by the Telfer School of Management and being of international recognition.

The number of grants may vary from one financial year to another depending on the availability of funds.  Please contact the Research Office in advance to secure funds.

Within one month of being awarded the SMRG research event grant, the applicant must confirm with the research office that the event has been scheduled and the invited speakers have been confirmed. Failure to do so may result in loss of the grant.

Each successful applicant is expected to submit their proposal to the University of Ottawa Conference/Workshop on Campus Opportunity before receiving the SMRG Research Event Grant.  Once a confirmation of the application is received by the Research Office, the funds from the Research Event Grant will be made available.

Any unused funds remaining after the event has taken place must be returned to the SMRG program.

If plans for your event change, please notify the Research Office immediately so funds can be reallocated.



A faculty member is eligible to be the recipient of only one Research Event Grant in a given academic year.

The grant is awarded at most 1 year prior to when the event is scheduled and cannot be extended.

This grant is not intended to support events of pedagogical nature.
