Research grants: what’s the catch?

Big grants, small potatoes: Can the RRFB recycle what Tim O’Neill threw in the trash?

“I respect the RRFB for creating student research opportunities with a sustainable focus. However, I’m concerned about what it means in the wake of Tim O’Neill’s Report on the University System in Nova Scotia, which emphasizes a series of recommendations on how to streamline expenses in the system.

As these grants are made available, the Department of Education is simultaneously considering O’Neill’s proposed cuts to postsecondary education. It looks like we’re moving into a supply-and-demand framework for funding our universities.”
