How to Get Funding & Partners
Making It Easier for Our Researchers
Need money to fund a project, staff member or PhD student? IMER can help you refine your idea, put a team together and navigate different funding options to help you on your way.
Preparing Grant Applications
Preparing grant proposals take time and sometimes a great deal of coordination.
IMER is here to support you through the funding and partnership process. We can make sure that all University requirements and processes are followed correctly. We can also allocate an officer or contractor to oversee this aspect of your project.
Check out Research Service's page on Funding Opportunities for advice. We like The Research Whisperer’s Research Grant Applications 101 .
