Funding Deadline Calendar

This calendar lists the most commonly held grants at the University of Calgary, and their associated deadlines. 

Unless otherwise noted, the Grants and Awards Division in Research Services has a standard internal deadline of noon, two business days in advance of the funding agency deadline, to receive grant applications for review and approval. Exceptions will only be made with approval of your Associate Dean (Research). The two-day deadline is intended to allow the maximum time for applicants to work on their applications, while ensuring that Research Services will be able to complete a basic review of the application and secure institutional signatures in a timely fashion. Applicants can still receive an optional detailed administrative review, provided that a complete copy of the application is submitted at least two weeks in advance of the funding agency deadline to allow for feedback and revisions.

Please click on the competition links for further details, internal deadlines, submission processes, and more. Deadlines indicated below are the sponsor deadlines and are subject to change without notice. Please note that this is NOT a comprehensive listing as new funding opportunities can be announced throughout the year.

Institutional Programs are subject to institutional quotas and/or pre-approval through the faculty, SUPPORT and the VPR and include the CFI, Genome Canada, WD, NCE and major Tri Council grants. For information on these programs, please visit  Institutional Programs or contact ipd@ucalgary.ca.  

For further assistance, please contact the Research Grants Assistant or review the User Guide
