TIRF’s 2020 Masters Research Grants (MRG) program is being postponed until at least 2021. The reason for this change is because of COVID-19, which is forcing many organizations around the world to make difficult decisions.

TIRF is certainly feeling the effects of the pandemic our global community is facing. Our hope is that we will be able to resume the offering of this program in 2021, but doing so will depend on the availability of funding.

The Foundation would be grateful if you could please share this note with anyone who may be impacted by this decision. Please direct any questions to TIRF’s Chief Operating Officer, Ryan Damerow, by writing to him at rdamerow@miis.edu.

We appreciate your support during these challenging times, and are sending our very best wishes for good health to all and better days ahead.
