Grant Agreement

Grant Agreements are usually handled by the Grants Facilitators in the Office of Research Services. The Grants Facilitators are: Jeananne Vickery (Natural Sciences and Engineering), Bonnie Stewart (Social Sciences and Humanities) or Robin Ashcroft (Health Sciences).

Research supported by a grant is controlled and directed by the researcher to pursue the research interests of the researcher. In general, a grant agreement does not:

  • specify a statement of work
  • have a detailed schedule for work 
  • specify deliverables
  • require invoicing for expenditures  
  • require intellectual property rights, or 
  • restrict publication in any way

Intellectual property rights reside with the creator(s) as per Queen's policy. Grant funds are normally received in advance of performing the research. The researcher may be required to provide a report to the granting agency on the work performed.
*Please note: If an agreement is entitled "Grant Agreement" by a sponsor, but contains elements as outlined in the Contracts section, it will be administered at Queen's as a contract, and will carry the same indirect cost (overhead) rate as a Contract.
