The final report is to be submitted as an electronic copy to the Committee c/o Lyn Locke Excerpts from the final report will be included in VIU’s Annual Research Report, therefore, please write from a third person perspective.

Failure to present a final report, with full disclosure of how the funding was used, will render the proponent ineligible for future VIURAC funding.

The recipients of VIURAC funds are also obligated to report on the outcomes of the project on the Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity Office database.

It is expected that successful applicants, upon invitation, will make a public presentation at the annual Celebration of Research or other appropriate VIU event.
