Ambrose University Awarded Prestigious Tri-Council Research Support Fund
Earlier this year, Ambrose University was awarded, The Government of Canada's Tri-Council Research Support Fund (RSF). Each year the RSF assists Canadian postsecondary institutions of higher education and their affiliated institutes with the indirect expenses associated with managing their research. The RSF program is funded by three federal research-granting agencies.
The purpose of the RSF is to make Canada one of the world’s leading countries in research and development.
The RSF builds upon Ambrose’s efforts to provide administrative support and resources to federally funded research projects.
As a result of this grant, Ambrose has been awarded a total of $60,292 over the past four years. That award has been put towards:
- adding library resources
- developing research related policies
- engaging with a consultant to direct the development of research processes
- purchasing research related equipment
- supporting professional development of the research ethics committee
In this fifth consecutive year of awards, Ambrose was provided $30,082.These essential funds will be used to advance our research initiatives. The RSF grant will be distributed to support the administration of our Research Office in the following ways: implementing equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives, developing research data management policies and procedures, and promoting research.
Dr. Pamela M. Nordstrom, Provost, Senior Vice President and Professor of Higher Education Administration, shares her gratitude.
“We are very grateful to the Canadian government for this support through the RSF.
These funds have made it possible to engage a consultant to get some of this essential work completed – work that would not have happened without the RSF.”
These funds support foundational development in areas of research administration. The impact of receiving the fund will continue to be felt long past this year’s work as we continue to build research capacity at Ambrose.
We look forward to sharing the results from these projects in the future.
