The Alberta Land Institute announces a Call for Proposals for its research grants competition. The deadline for receipt of applications is July 10, 2018. We expect that successful applicants will be notified by September 15, 2018.

Project Period: 

Expected date of completion is November 2019. Funding for further research may be available in subsequent years depending on the potential policy implications and the proposed approach.

Proposed Budget: 

Projects will be funded to a maximum of $50,000 for a one-year period.

Selection Process:

Applications will be pre-screened by ALI staff and then reviewed by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC). Upon the recommendations of the RAC, the Research Director and Director will make the final decision on the awards.


Applicants must submit a completed application form along with a personal data form from a tri-council agency for themselves and each Co-Investigator. Application forms and guidelines can be downloaded from the links above. Please review the guidelines carefully before completing the application form. Please submit one PDF containing all required information and documentation on or before the deadline through the links above.

The following must be submitted within two months of project completion (i.e., by December 30, 2018 for one year projects):

1. A Final Report describing the research findings, methodology and conclusions as well as – and in a substantive manner – the policy issue that the research addresses and the implications of the report for policy and/or practice. For some projects specific synthesis reports will be required as outlined in the description of research areas.

2. A short (2–4 pages), non-technical summary of the Final Report.

The above documents will be posted on the ALI website.

Subsequent applications will only be considered if satisfactory final or interim progress reports of all previous and existing ALI grants have been fulfilled prior to the new application.  

Any published work that is derivative of the research supported by the grant must acknowledge the financial support received from the ALI. ALI must be provided with a copy of any publications.
