KIAS supports research in the Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts at the University of Alberta. Our regular funding programme features Dialogue Grants, Research Team Grants, and Research Cluster Grants focusing on research with the potential for national or international recognition. Our joint collaboration grants include the Alberta Humanities Research Grant co-funded with the Calgary Institute for the Humanities at the University of Calgary and the Alberta-Saskatchewan Research Collaboration Grant co-funded with the Interdisciplinary Centre for Culture and Creativity at the University of Saskatchewan. We also have special targeted grants such as the CRAfT Digital Research Archives Grant.

Grant applicants must be full-time continuing faculty members or other academic staff eligible to hold Tri-Council research funding at UAlberta as per the University's "Eligibility to Apply for and Hold Research Funding" policy. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please contact your Research Facilitator in the University's Research Services Office.
