The emphasis of the RSP program should be about supporting students and their research projects. While there is no specific threshold for a ratio of direct salary support for the student versus other forms of financial support (such as research materials or research travel), applications that do not request the majority of the funding for student salary are expected to include carefully detailed explanations about the need for the non-salary requests, and explain how this part of the request will benefit the supported student’s research experience.
Maximum application request = $7,500 per student.
