Research Opportunity Fund – Program Guidelines

Funding available

The total amount available ($200,000) for the ROF will be established annually as part of Niagara College’s budget process.

The maximum individual grant from the Niagara College ROF will be established annually by the ROF Review Committee. Grants may be available for the full amount or a portion, depending on the maximum individual amount set by the committee. At this time, the suggested range for projects is up to a maximum of $50,000 for one project.

NOTE: The first year of the ROF will be undertaken as a pilot year. Lessons learned during the pilot year will be used to improve the program for subsequent years.

Application process

The application process has two main stages, the Expression of Interest (EOI), and the Full Application. The EOI must be submitted and acknowledged first, before proceeding to the Full Application stage.
