Internal Publications Award

Up to two Internal Publications Awards are available per year to support the publication of manuscripts, written or edited by UPEI faculty, by Island Studies Press. The awards of $7,500 each will be disbursed to Island Studies Press to cover publication costs (including editing, photo and other permissions, design, printing, marketing, and other costs associated with publishing a book).  Authors will be offered ISP's standard publication contract, which ensures authorial copyright and includes a royalty structure.

Competition deadline: October 29, 2018

Internal Research Grants (IRG) program and SSHRC Explore Research Grants (SERG) program

The IRG and SERG competitions provide research grants of up to $5000 to support stand-alone projects through the funding of fully developed research proposals.

These programs will support three categories of investigators: 1) new faculty members (independent academic researchers for 6 years or less), 2) investigators seeking bridge funding to maintain program momentum between gaps in external funding, and 3) investigators looking to move into a new area of research.

Competition deadline: November 30, 2018
