Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


The Incremental Project Grant (IPG) is a stream of the Research Support Fund (RSF) that provides eligible institutions with further support for the indirect costs of research. 

The IPG provides additional support for projects in priority areas that cut across the RSF’s five existing categories of eligible expenses.

Five Expenditure Categories

Institutions have flexibility in deciding how to use their grant, provided that the funds are used for the payment of current expenditures of indirect costs attributed to federally sponsored research that falls within the following five categories:

  1. research facilities
  2. research resources
  3. management and administration of the institution's research enterprise
  4. regulatory requirements and accreditation
  5. intellectual property and knowledge mobilization

The expenditures for the IPG program must always adhere to the general principles of the Research Support Fund (RSF) program.

The four IPG priority areas are:

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

As part of Laurier’s commitment to transparency and clear communication, we report on the spending of IPG funds and share our institutional performance objectives.
