Grants

DSR provides support grants for research in all areas of science, engineering, environmental design and management with the aim of promoting productive research and creative scholarship. This support includes (i) monthly compensation for faculty members, students and technicians contributing towards the project, (ii) per diem support to attend internationally recognized conferences to present papers, (iii) purchasing of equipment, (iv) reimbursement of costs related to stationery and miscellaneous items and (v) sabbatical and summer scholar program support.

All proposals are evaluated by two or three international reviewers selected by the University Research Committee from well-known experts in the fields of the projects. The final decision to accept or reject the proposal is based upon the reviewers’ evaluation of the proposal. At any one time, a faculty member can be part of a maximum of three active projects recommended by the University Research Committee to be eligible for compensation (i.e. two as a principal investigator and one as a co-investigator).
