Western’s Interdisciplinary Development Initiatives (IDI) program is intended to seed new interdisciplinary collaborations that help position teams for success in securing external funding. IDIs will be exceptional programs that advance Western’s research mission, attract scholars and graduate students to the university, and bring prestige to the institution. Applications should be led by established or emerging scholars, integrate two or more disciplines (which may or may not be commonly combined) and will have clearly articulated research dimensions and objectives.

Amount: IDIs will be considered under two streams:

  • Stream 1: Up to $35,000 over one year
  • Stream 2: Up to $200,000 over two years
