B.9 Office of the Vice President (Research) Thesis/Dissertation Research Grants

The Office of the Vice President (Research) recognizes that there are instances where standard funding for thesis research available through a program or faculty may not be adequate to meet certain special needs that are essential to the completion of a particular thesis research project.

The primary purpose of the Thesis/Dissertation Research Grant program is to assist graduate students with exceptional or unanticipated costs that are essential to the completion of their thesis/dissertation projects, but that could not reasonably be anticipated when their project was approved. The expenses must be beyond the means of the student, laboratory or department. These awards are not intended to provide basic project funding. These awards are competitive. To be eligible, applicants must be registered full-time in a research (thesis) based program leading to a master’s or doctoral degree from the University of Calgary. Graduate students applying for Thesis/Dissertation Research Grants must have their thesis/dissertation project approved by the department.

An application guide and the application form may be found at ucalgary.ca/research/files/research/171116_vpr_thesis_grants.pdf.
