External Funding Opportunities

These are some of the opportunities available to College researchers. Prospective applicants should contact the Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI) before beginning work on proposals. CRI vets all external research applications that involve the use of Fanshawe resources (employees, facilities, equipment, etc.) prior to submission to an outside funder. Inquiries: T3010, London Campus (in person), by telephone at (519) 452-4430, ext. 4734 or via email at research@fanshawec.ca.

Note: NSERC recently reorganized its Applied Research & Development grants (ARD), which used to be available under that name at three funding levels. ARD Level 1 (up to $25,000 for a six-month project) grants are now called Engage for Colleges. The Level 2 and 3 grants have been combined and renamed Applied Research & Development grants with no levels. These grants are for projects up to three years in length to a maximum of $150,000 per year.
