Research Support Fund 

The Research Support Fund, formally known as the Indirect Cost Program, assists Canadian postsecondary institutions with the expenses associated with managing research funded by the three federal research granting agencies. The fund is a tri-agency initiative of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The funds are to help pay for indirect costs of research, which make up a portion of the central and departmental administrative costs associated with managing funded research. Seneca uses funds under the management and administration category to support applied research activities.
