Innovation York’s Commercialization Fellowships open to applicants

Innovation York Commercialization Fellowship

Innovation York has opened application for the Commercialization Fellowship program that supports projects with commercial potential from across York University. The fellowship is open to post-graduate students and post-doctoral Fellows with approval from their academic supervisor. It provides $7,500 in funding to support commercialization of research.

Commercialization Fellowships, funded by Innovation York in the Office of the Vice-President Research & Innovation, are intended to support the research commercialization process by providing strategic, short-term funding to assist in the development of commercially viable projects. The aim is to prepare projects for commercial engagement with industry and/or community partners, with a view to licensing and/or co-development of the project intellectual property.

Recipients will be given $7,500 per fellowship. While matching funds are not mandatory, applications that include matching funds will be looked upon favourably.

Applications will close on Oct. 31. Visit the Commercialization Fellowship website to review program details, eligibility and how to apply.
