IDEAWORKS Catalyst Fund: Grant Writing Support Stream

The IDEAWORKS Catalyst Fund (ICF) is available to support and encourage Mohawk faculty and staff to engage in applied research. The fund is designed to develop and build internal capacity for research and innovation by providing the funding needed for faculty and staff to turn their ideas into solutions.

In 2022-2023, IDEAWORKS launched a new stream of the ICF focused on providing funding to help new and emerging researchers prepare external grant applications. Funding can be used for either an internal course release or to hire an external grant writer.

2023-2024 Application Deadlines:
Fall Funding: April 14, 2023 
Winter Funding: October 13, 2023

A limited amount of funding is available and unfortunately, not all applicants will be funded. Awarded funding levels may vary depending on the size of the grant and the standard time it takes to prepare a grant of that size. All funding decisions are at the discretion of the IDEAWORKS review committee.
