Match funding opportunities | ONGOING
We offer match funding to qualifying BC-based researchers and research teams applying to non-BC government-funded research competitions that require applicants to source match funding as a condition of the application. This increases the ability of BC researchers to compete nationally and internationally, and attracts research dollars from outside BC.
MSFHR will accept requests for match funding at any time. Requests must be received at least five weeks prior to the competition’s application deadline.
