The Parex Resources Innovation Fellowships were launched in 2019 for researchers from across the university who are immersed in academic research and community partnerships leading to start-ups or technology advancement based on new discoveries, insights, and innovation. These fellowships are supported by an endowment from alumnus Wayne Foo and Parex Resources Inc. with the goal of enabling researchers to focus to translating research results into societal impact.

Two types of fellowships are currently awarded on an annual basis to tenure-track/tenured faculty:

  • Parex Resources Innovation Fellowships (5)
  • Parex Resources Visiting Innovation Fellowship (1)

For 2023, each fellowship is valued at $20,000 over two years. The award can be used in support of research and innovation activities of the fellow or as travel support for the visiting innovation fellow. Teaching relief corresponding to a single half-course equivalent will be automatically awarded to successful candidates in the following faculties: Cumming, Haskayne, Kinesiology, SAPL, Schulich, Science, and Veterinary Medicine. Any additional funding used to obtain release from teaching must be supported by a letter of approval from a department head or dean.
