The Seneca Applied Research Fund (ARF), a college-wide, internally funded and administered fund, supports emerging applied research activities at Seneca. ARF aligns with Seneca's strategic priorities and academic plan, and is designed to strengthen networks among students, faculty, staff and external partners.
Through the 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, which address a business challenge brought forward by the partner and that 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.
