Incremental Project Grant

The Incremental Project Grants (IPG) funding opportunity is a stream of the Tri-Agency Research Support Fund (RSF). Similar to the RSF grant, it provides support for the indirect costs of research, but for designated projects that support certain key strategic priorities.

The IPG provides eligible institutions with additional support for projects that focus on a set of priorities that cut across the RSF’s five existing categories of eligible expenses. The initial four IPG priority areas are:

  • innovation and commercialization activities;
  • facilities renewal, including deferred maintenance;
  • information resources, including digital resources, open access and databases; and
  • equity, diversity and faculty renewal (in the context of equity, diversity and inclusion).
