Funding Opportunities

Collaboration Fund

Please email with any questions or inquiries. 

The Matrix Institute is offering a collaboration fund for supporting activities whose interests align with Matrix research areas. The idea is to support activities that foster collaboration and advance Matrix-related research projects. As this is the first such program for Matrix, we ask for your patience as we resolve any issues that may arise.


  • Broaden collaborative research among Matrix disciplines.
  • Expose students to Matrix research faculty.
  • Expand the scope of research on Matrix-affiliated topics at UVic.

Criteria and Process

Please submit applications via this form (Uvic login required), and email when you have submitted.

Please refer to the Collaboration Fund Guidelines.
