For faculty

DLC Funding

David Lam Centre offers two funding awards. A small award of up to $2,000 is offered on a rolling basis, and we aim to make funding decisions within two weeks. A large award of up to $7,000 is offered in two annual competitions, one in February and one in October.

For full funding policy and evaluation criteria visit the DLC Funding Page.

Logistical Support

As important as funding, we can also provide logistical support. Given adequate lead time, we can coordinate events by booking rooms at SFU Vancouver campus; organizing food and drink; preparing event posters; and announcing the event to our networks.

Some of the rooms at Harbour Centre may be booked by us free-of-charge through SFU Meeting, Events and Conferences (MECS) for DLC-sponsored events. These rooms include the policy rooms and seminar rooms. We are also eligible to book rooms in the Wosk Centre and Segal Building at a discounted rate. For more information on venues, catering and technology available in the SFU Vancouver campus, visit MECS website.

DLC Scholar-in-Residence

DLC Member who agrees to be the primary faculty contact for a DLC Scholar-in-Residence is asked to organize at least one public event (in English or in the language of their choice) and encourage engagement by the visiting scholar with the SFU academic community.

Scholars-in-Residence are usually persons with significant academic, literary or artistic qualifications. Besides conducting their own research at the David Lam Centre, they are also expected to participate in the SFU academic community and in wider community activities by attending lectures, workshops and colloquia, and presenting original research.
