The Seneca ARF is an institution-wide, internally funded and administered initiative that supports emerging applied research activities at Seneca. It aligns with Seneca's strategic priorities and academic plan, and is designed to strengthen networks among students, faculty, staff and external partners.
Through the Seneca ARF, up to $12,000 is available to Seneca faculty researchers, through an annual call for proposals, to explore applied research initiatives. In partnership with an industry and/or community partner, research initiatives address a business challenge brought forward by the partner and provide experiential learning opportunities for student researchers. All projects must clearly demonstrate the importance of the research to the external partner and value to student researchers.
Timeline for the 2020-2021 ARF:
- interested applicants must submit a notice of intent by Sept. 8 at 4 p.m.
- an ARF grant development workshop will be provided on Sept. 22 (through Webex and a recording) for those invited to a full application
- for-profit industry partners must make a cash contribution equal to at least 10 per cent of the grant amount (not-for-profits do not need to contribute cash)
Timeline for 2021-2022 to be announced.
