Funding Opportunities

Simon Fraser University offers a variety of resources to assist faculty, staff and students to identify funding opportunities.

Funding and Award Opportunities Database

The Office of the Vice-President, Research launched the Funding and Award Opportunities Database on January 17, 2018. You can search for funding opportunities by topic, deadline and scope. You can also have access to international, federal, provincial, and local funding sources. Institutional Strategic Award (ISA) manages the internal process and provides developmental support for limited submission, large-scale and complex funding and award opportunities. Users will be directed to the ISA website for program-specific details on internal process, timeline, and recources.
