Supports research projects on geographical topics that further the mandate of the Society
The Royal Canadian Geographical Society supports independent research projects (maximum of $5000, if applications merit) on geographical topics that further the mandate of the Society “to make Canada better known to Canadians and to the world.” Proposals must identify the topic to be addressed, the methods to be used and the nature of the finished product.
Awards are restricted to projects that are undertaken in Canada, by Canadian residents and that address some element of the country’s geography. Must be Independent Researchers; may not be students or employees of a post-secondary institution.
Applications for a grant are considered once a year. The deadline for submission of complete applications is February 14th, annually. The Committee usually announces its grants 4-6 weeks after this deadline.
