We are pleased to announce the 2024/25 Grants for Catalyzing Research Clusters (GCRC) Competition.
The competition is open to new and returning clusters of research excellence in all disciplines on the Vancouver campus. Applicants may select a budget term of one or two years. Cluster leads must submit a notice of intent by November 1, 2023.
This year, a number of changes have been incorporated into the program following external review and consultation, and are detailed here.
More information about this funding competition, the application process and upcoming information sessions on October 16 and 17 is available here.
Grants are enabled by the UBC Vancouver Academic Excellence Funds in support of Research Excellence Strategy 6 (Collaborative Clusters) in UBC’s strategic plan.
GCRC competitions are open to clusters led by researchers at UBC Vancouver. Clusters led by researchers at UBC Okanagan are supported through the Eminence program.
