Sabbatic Leave Research Grants

General information

The purpose of an internal sabbatic leave research grant is to enable eligible sabbaticants to apply to take part of their salary as a research grant.

McGill gives sabbaticants the opportunity to take advantage of income tax regulations which allow the University, under certain conditions, to award a research grant from funds that normally would have been paid as salary to that faculty member while on leave.

Deadline: Two months prior to sabbatic research leave.

Average award: No more than 50% of applicant's salary.


Application and approval process

Guidelines, conditions and further information are contained in the application form, which can be downloaded here: Sabbatical Leave Research Grant Guidelines and Application [.doc] .

The form must be completed and forwarded to the Chair, Dean and Budget Administrator of your department for approval. The Office of Sponsored Research will then verify and forward the approval to the Budget and Payroll Office for processing.

The amount of the grant will be transfered from the salary budget of the grantee's department to a research allocation within the department's budget for the duration of the grant. Should the period of the research grant fall into two University fiscal years (May 1 to April 30), separate entries will be made for the appropriate portion for each year, on a pro rata basis.

The Budget and Payroll Office will issue a cheque for the full amount of the first budget year and a subsequent cheque at the start of the second budget year. It will require no special action by the Department or the grantee.
