The formula used to calculate the RSF grant amounts remains unchanged. The RSF’s budget remains unchanged, so any variance to the grant amount is related to the amount of funding the institution’s researchers received from the agencies in the three most recent years for which data is available. The budget for the Incremental Project Grants has increased to $46.3 million for 2020-21, as initially planned in Budget 2018.
