ROP Funding Request

ROP Funding Request Details

In order to recognize the success of this program and to encourage its continued development, the Dean is providing funds ‐ on a highly competitive basis ‐ so that ROP supervisors may apply to our office for research support of up to $1500.00 per student/project.

The funds are to be used for any legitimate research expense which can include:

  • Supplies
  • Field work
  • Assisting student travel to perform their ROP‐related tasks*
  • Lab Consumables
  • Equipment**
  • Software
  • Tools
  • Speciality Training
  • Photocopy/Printing

*Student travel expenses do not include student travel to conferences.  Expenses for student travel to conferences should be discussed separately with your Department and not applied for in your ROP Funding Request.

**Determined on a case-by-case basis and not all requests for the purchase of equipment will be approved.

To apply for the ROP research funds, please log onto the ROPAPP and select the Bank icon next to your project proposal(s).

Include the following information in your funding proposal:

  1. A budget for the funding.
  2. A brief description of the purpose for the allotted funds and its significance to your project.
  3. How these funds might benefit the student research experience in your course.

The deadline for project funding requests for the 2017-2018 ROP season is Monday, April 17, 2017.
