Call for Proposals: Lakehead University/Quetico Foundation Research Program - Deadline Extended to December 15, 2019

Lakehead University’s Vice-President Research and Innovation (VPRI) is pleased to announce the first call for project proposals through the Lakehead University/Quetico Foundation Research Program (LU-QF Research Program). The LU-QF research program will support research projects relating to the environment, ecology, and biology of Quetico Park.  The program is open to all disciplines (anthropology, archaeology, history, indigenous knowledge, forestry, etc.) and research areas (eco-tourism, climate change, environmental degradation, etc.) as long as the results of the research will contribute to the generation of new knowledge and data related to these primary research priorities.  The LU-QF Research Program is open to all full-time faculty members.  The Quetico Foundation is seeking to support programs of research that include a high level of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) training (Masters, PhD and Postdoctoral Fellows).     

A total of $150,000 over three years is available from the Quetico Foundation to support a maximum of two projects (up to $75,000 per project).  The QF is seeking to support research projects that leverage other research funding opportunities which may include but are not limited to programs such as the MITACs Accelerate program, Early Researcher Awards, and NSERC Discovery grants.  

Deadline:  Extended to December 15, 2019
