Q: Can Spark help me apply for research funding?

The place to start for help with applying is your Faculty’s grant support team.  If you don’t know who they are, you can ask at ROADS, they’ll know.

If you are a Social Sciences faculty member, your first stop for pre-grant support is the Faculty’s Research Support team.  They can help you identify funding opportunities and advise on the application process in our Faculty.

In addition to helping researchers with details of their methodology, we also offer a range of cost-recovery research infrastructure and services including:

  1. training for research teams (including research assistants)
  2. applied research services (e.g., survey programming, data cleaning, secure data storage, etc.)
  3. use of Spark facilities (e.g., coworking space, meeting rooms, focus group facility, interview rooms).

If you would like to include Spark services in your grant application, please schedule a research conversation before submitting your grant application.
