Creating a New Proposal?

Warning! Please ensure you have selected the ID of the Department/Faculty where the activity will take place and that will manage the funds, rather than "ALL DEP".  If "ALL DEP" is chosen, RSO will not be able to process your request.

Have an idea for RAVES (Research Administration Video Education Series)?

RSO is planning to produce more training videos as part of our Research Administration Video Education Series (RAVES). We are looking for your input on RSO processes or topics that you'd like to learn more about. We will produce screencast videos, depending on the topic.

What topic do you think should be made into a short three-minute video?

If you have a topic you'd like to suggest, please email the topic to

Tri-Agency – Upcoming Financial Monitoring Review

The Tri-Agency (NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR) have confirmed that they will undertake a financial monitoring review of the University of Alberta during the months of November and December, 2016. To help get ready for the review, RSO has resource pages for both researchers and research administrators.

To prepare for the review, we have created two short videos:
