Charting Your Research Idea
Have a conversation with your supervisor. You may wish to discuss the following questions:
Your Applied Research Project Support Form should be signed by your supervisor before formally developing your project. This allows Okanagan College to examine projects and determine if there are resources that may be available to support your project.
Implementing Your Project
Once your project is approved and funded, the Learning and Applied Research Unit and Finance will take care of the administration of your funds so you can focus on your project. Funds from external agencies, including NSERC, SSHRC, etc., are awarded to Okanagan College and these funds are managed in accordance with the agency-approved budget and guidelines.
The Learning and Applied Research Unit will also work with you to support students being paid after you have approved and submitted their time sheets.
Potential Funding Options
There may be external funding opportunities and/or partnerships available for your project. If you apply for external funding the timelines for the start and end date for the applied research project may be influenced by deadlines set by the funding agency.
A list of potential funding opportunities can be found on the Applied Research Funding Sources page here.
