Research Grant in Lieu of Salary

Effective January 1, 2001, employees shall be entitled to receive a portion of their salary in the form of a research grant in accordance with university practice for sabbatical leave grants provided they can demonstrate that such funds are required for research that extends beyond their normal duties. Each college shall have a research committee to access the quality of proposals for research grants and the funding requested, among other things. Research grants shall not be unreasonably withheld. The grant may include funds for travel, certain living expenses while away from Saskatoon, national and international conference, research materials, book and journals, telephone, fax, copying, and for such other items as are related to the research costs. (Note: The tax status of expenditures under the research grant is a matter to be settled between the individual and the Canada Revenue Agency.)
