Funding at George Brown
George Brown College holds two competitions in early November in order to build research capacity and foster a culture of innovation at the college.
Applied Research Funding (formerly SEED Funding)
The George Brown College Applied Research Fund (ARF) was developed to build collaborative research and innovation capacity within George Brown staff. All ARF projects need to:
- Be led by a first time researcher at the college;
- Address the needs and involve external partner(s) (industry or community);
- And, provide learning opportunities for student researchers.
The annual call for proposals is early November. Learn more.
Teaching and Learning Research Fund
The George Brown Teaching and Learning Research Fund (TLRF) funds projects that test new teaching methods or processes of teaching and/or learning. The methods must be scalable or replicable. Learning’s from the research projects should be something that faculty across the college can use to enhance their teaching and all projects must align with one or more of the College’s strategic priorities.
