College Applied Research Development Fund
The College Applied Research Development (CARD) Fund is is an internal funding source administered by Research Partnerships & Innovation to encourage faculty, staff, and students to engage in research activities at the College. The intent is to develop and build internal research capacity within the College while providing a platform for innovation for those who are eager to conduct practical research, but are in need of opportunities and resources.
In general, the funding is intended to be used to:
- conduct short-term applied research projects;
- carry out demonstration and/or proof-of-concept applied research projects;
- prepare industry-focused applied research proposals;
- conduct and assess the commercial potential of projects;
- provide assistance in proposal preparation; and/or
- support research dissemination – including the preparation and presentation of publications, as well as organization of research workshops and symposiums.
The fund has now provided close to $1M to faculty, staff and students to conduct applied research projects. The value of each award is typically up to $7,500. Projects may exceed this amount, but internal and/or external sources of funding are required in such situations. The CARD funding supports:
- research salary assistance;
- and other miscellaneous costs.
