Division : Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering

Type : Divisional Pedagogical Grant, Pedagogical Grant

More Information :


Established by Dean Emerita Cristina Amon, the Dean’s Strategic Fund is designed to encourage the development of initiatives that will have a broad impact within the Faculty. Projects potentially further U of T Engineering’s Academic Plan goals such as enhancing diversity and inclusivity or developing multi-departmental and collaborative cross-faculty initiatives. The intent of the DSF is to encourage novel ideas to be implemented that might otherwise not begin due to a lack of start-up funding.


  1. All instructors but preference is given to proposals that bring forward collaborative innovative ideas, as well as projects that expand on current resources established throughout the faculty and leverage existing institutional initiatives.
  2. Submissions of up to a maximum of six pages should be prepared using the mandatory attached template, and must include an executive summary, description of the project, outline of targeted milestones, and an itemized listing of annual budget requirements.


Deadline changes annually
