Funding Sources and Titles

Grant proposals that have been peer-reviewed and funded by granting agencies (CIHR, SSHRC, NSERC, NIH, etc.) should be submitted as additional information.

When submitting an application for ethics review for a project that is funded and the funds are being administered by SFU Office of Research Services (ORS), please ensure that the Principal Investigator listed on the funding award, sub-award, contract or sub-contract, is the same as the Principal Investigator on the ethics application. The Principal Investigator must be a SFU Faculty or Adjunct Faculty member for all types of funding except MITACS. If the study is funded by MITACS, ORS will accept the SFU student or Faculty supervisor listed as Principal Investigator on the ethics Application.

In addition, the overall study title for the ethics application may be different from your funding title; however, you must ensure that the funding title is included in question 3 of your ethics application. If you include this information correctly, your funding source and funding title as well as the Principal Investigator will appear on your SFU Ethics Approval Letter issued by ORE and ORS will be able to release your funds.
