UCQ Scholarly Seed Grant (SSG)


The University of Calgary in Qatar Scholarly Seed Grant (SSG) was created in 2015 to strengthen faculty scholarship and research capacity. This funding initiative is aligned with Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030 to create a knowledge economy in Qatar and the University of Calgary’s Eyes High strategic vision.


Purpose and scope

The purpose of the SSG is to foster faculty capacity by providing funding to conduct research in teaching and learning, practice and system related research with partners in the community. This funding is not provided for research limited to review of the literature.


Funding Cycle

Funds for the SSG are sourced internally, mainly from UCQ’s portion of overhead costs from major funding programs. Requests for proposals (RFP) are contingent on availability of funding. All Faculty will be informed when the next cycle is due.
