Applied Research and Development (ARD) Grants are offered through the College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program, which is managed by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
These ARD Grants are intended to provide companies that operate from a Canadian base access to the unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities available at Canadian colleges and to train students in essential technical skills required by companies. The mutually beneficial collaborations are expected to result in economic benefits to the company and/or Canada.There are grant specifications for grants up to $75,000 per year, and other specifications for grants between $75,000 and $150,000 per year.
Effective December 1, 2017, there will be changes to the program requirements for matching contributions from partner organizations.
