BCIT Institute Research Funds (IRF) allow BCIT employees to pursue research initiatives for which they are unable to obtain funding from other sources or allow researchers to leverage institute funds to obtain research funding from external agencies and partners that they would otherwise be unable to access. The intentions of the Funds are to fund research applications that will require partial release time from duties for the principal investigator, or to fund the preparation of applications for external grants.
