Sample Funding Opportunities

Sample Funding Opportunities

Sheridan Undergraduate Research (SURe) actively identifies and communicates undergraduate research funding opportunities to the Sheridan community, via notifications to the Faculty Deans and notices in the Sheridan Insider and the Innovator.  All external applications for undergraduate research funding must go through the Sheridan Undergraduate Research, as part of Sheridan’s formal project funding process. SURe would be pleased to oversee the development of research proposals by Faculties and/or external partners, and assist with the procurement of any necessary support. Sheridan’s funding application procedure is as follows:

Important information regarding Sheridan’s funding application approval process:

1. All interested parties should secure the approval of the appropriate Dean prior to working on any application. SURe's Expression of Interest Form is available through the SURe internal portal

2.  Expressions of interest forms, along with confirmation of support of the Dean, should then be sent to SURe via email so that approval from the Provost is secured prior to work beginning on the application. Please also remember that all plans to proceed with any of these grants must be approved by the Sheridan Executive before they can be submitted.

3. Once approved, SURe is ready and willing to assist with the proposal preparation.

4. Internal deadlines are generally two weeks in advance of deadlines published in the Call for Proposals that follow.
