LPIRG believes that positive social change though citizen education and direct participation in the processes of public policy and program creation is possible. Democratic citizens have a responsibility to participate in educating themselves and others on social justice issues and to act on this education. LPIRG primarily focuses on sustainable development, inclusiveness and diversity in its activities. We believe that diversity in viewpoints must be respected and encouraged if strong communities are to be created.
LPIRG funds research that is deemed to be in the public interest, and that may not be funded through other sources. Research projects must fit within the above value statements of LPIRG. LPIRG WILL NOT fund research with funding partners that go against the values of LPIRG.
Please fill out the following form - it will be submitted directly to LPIRG for consideration. We highly recommend this application be made no fewer that 30 days in advance - we cannot guarantee funding ahead of your event if this application is submitted less than 30 days in advance of the event. We can process applications for post-event funding if deadline is not met.
Research grant applications must include a budget and a timeline of your research project. LPIRG is able to fund research projects up to 500 CAD per academic school year. For example, if you have previously received a grant for 200 CAD, you would be eligible to receive 300 CAD for a different project/travel/etc. Please note that priority is given to individuals who are current undergraduate or graduate students at the University of Lethbridge.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
to let us know the form has been completed and submitted, and with any supporting documents and budget.
