Internal Deadlines

The Office of Nursing Research & Teaching Scholarship (ONRTS) aims to provide timely support to aid UBC Nursing researchers to identify and apply for research funding. This includes assistance with obtaining institutional approval for funding applications.

  • Agency Ethics Certification Requirements Page;
  • Budget summary and all accompanying financial information; and
  • Letters of financial support or matching funds from UBC, collaborating companies, or other institutions.
  • A signed Research Project Information Form (RPIF)

  • UBC internal deadline: 5 business days before sponsor’s deadline
  • Applicant’s web submission deadline: 2 business days before funder’s deadline
