Tri-Agency Research Support Fund

The Research Support Fund (RSF) supports Canadian postsecondary institutions and their affiliates with a portion of the costs associated with managing the indirect costs of research.  Formerly known as the Indirect Costs Program, the RSF program is a Tri-Agency initiative of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.  Grants can be used to:

• maintain modern labs and equipment;
• provide access to up-to-date knowledge resources;
• provide research management and administrative support;
• meet regulatory and ethical standards; and
• transfer knowledge from academia to the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Yukon College received $19,654 RSF grant funds for 2016-17 and the funds were used to maintain lab equipment as well as provide research management and administrative support.
