About

Research Services Office (RSO) supports researchers and administrators by helping the U of A research community find, apply for, receive and manage research funding.

RSO’s goals are to enable leading-edge research at the University of Alberta by making our services easy to use and to reduce the amount of time it takes to process research awards.

Our office of over 75 staff is part of the Office of the Vice-President (Research) portfolio. Staff is organized by the following five teams:

  1. Administration
  2. Contracts & Agreements
  3. Finance & Information Management
  4. Partnership & Institutional Projects
  5. Research Facilitation & Strategic Initiatives

To assist you better, we post our statistics on a quarterly basis. Here you will find the latest research revenue, applications, active projects, and processing time statistics.

If you are looking for funding, try using our searchable funding opportunities database. Here you are able to customize your search based on the type of research you do.

Our office also educates researchers and researcher administrators on research administration topics throughout the year. Attend our Research Administration Day or at any time you can watch one of our online training videos in our Research Administration Video Education Series (RAVES).
