We are updating this page as funding agencies notify us of deadline extensions in response to COVID-19. Please check back regularly.

The Research Office is here to help UFV faculty members review and refine their research grant applications and proposals. Per the "internal deadline" column below, please submit your materials to Jerri-Lynne Cameron, Director of Research Services & Industry Engagement, at least two weeks prior to the grant's external deadline to allow adequate time for feedback. She will arrange to meet with you in person or provide comments via email.
