Research Support Fund
The Government of Canada generously helps to cover the indirect costs of research at KPU through the Research Support Fund (RSF). The RSF program is a tri-agency initiative of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). The RSF contributes to KPU’s ability to maintain a supportive research environment that enables researchers to be leaders in their fields. KPU recognizes that the funds received from RSF are derived from the taxes paid annually by Canadians and is committed to using these resources in the most efficient and ethical way possible to maximize its research outputs and impacts.
