The fund is granted once annually to support research by junior (untenured) Faculty members. The details of the fund can be found below. All grants are adjudicated by the PARR - Grant Adjudication sub-committee.

GUIDELINES
Junior Faculty funds (JFF) are available to assist untenured Faculty members with seed funding, pilot projects, limited emergency support, research travel, laboratory equipment, and student support. JFF may be allocated for the following types of research projects:
• Emergency funding for projects that have been funded but have additional or unexpected costs (fluctuating exchange rates, changes in manufacturing etc.)
• Pilot studies for new ideas with the goal of future funding to be applied for
• Project management/coordinator costs for managing large scale grants and projects
• Equipment Funding: specifically funding for specialized equipment that might be hard to acquire through regular funding
• Top-up funding/leveraging funding for large-scale grants such as CFI JELF, CFI IF, etc.
• Funding for projects/Faculty members who have lost their major sources of funding or are trying to restart research activities after a period of no external funding

ELIGIBILITY
• All junior full-time Faculty members and librarians in the Lassonde School of Engineering who are in the probationary/untenured or continuing appointment classifications are eligible.
• One award per year per Faculty member.
• Each Faculty member can apply individually or as part of the team in a funding cycle for JFF, but not both.
o Team applications are eligible for consideration if all applicants are YUFA Faculty affiliated with Lassonde. Team applications should indicate how any funds awarded should be divided up among the applicants.
• Members of the PARR - Grant Adjudication sub-committee are not eligible to apply for funding through this program while serving on the committee.

VALUE:
Historically the average amount granted for the fund was in the range of $500-$1,000.

DEADLINE
Applications are due June 30 every year. Please submit a completed application form via the online application portal.
The application form questions require details on the project and the budget. NO document upload is necessary.

EVALUATION PROCESS
Projects will be evaluated based on the need and urgency of the request.
The submitted applications will be reviewed by the Research Support Office for completeness followed by review by the PARR-Grant Adjudication sub-committee with a recommendation to the Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies and the Dean.

The funding will be transferred in August/September.
