General Guidelines

    • It is recommended and encouraged that APUF recipients utilize existing University of Toronto resources where appropriate i.e., student participation, technical support services, professional services, etc.


    • APUF funds may not be used for any of the following:
      • Pay faculty salaries
      • Offset travel costs to conferences at which you are presenting your work;
      • Basic computer and related equipment expenses, nor will such items be considered as matching funds. However, specialized equipment that is specifically related to the project may be eligible, so long as a justification for inclusion is contained in the application;
      • Costs associated with project dissemination.


  • Research Ethics: IMPORTANT! Where relevant, applicants must include at the time of submission a formal letter or email notification from the University of Toronto Research Ethics Board stating that ethics has been approved, the project is exempt, or that it is pending.
