Sponsor

The awards are funded by Imperial Oil Resources Limited and Imperial Oil, a partnership of Imperial Oil Limited and McColl-Frontenac Petroleum Inc ("Imperial Oil").

Program

University Research Awards

Description

University research awards are designed to encourage research at Canadian universities in areas of interest to Imperial Oil's petroleum, petrochemical and energy resource development businesses. These areas include the fields of engineering, environmental, earth, chemical, and physical sciences.

Award winners are chosen by Imperial Oil. The selection committee considers business relevance of the proposed research, opportunities for knowledge transfer and potential significance of results to the company. Preference will be given to self-contained research projects, although projects delving into a definitive segment of broader research will be considered.

Awards for specific research projects are made to full-time faculty members to support research work carried out by university students under their direction.

Funding Availability

Individual awards are normally available in amounts ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 depending on budgets for the proposed research, availability of funds, and potential significance of the research as determined by Imperial.

Awards are made for one year and may be renewed annually for a maximum tenure of three years.
