SOSCIP Smart Computing for Innovation
SOSCIP accelerates the adoption of transformative technology through academic-industry partnerships that harness advanced computing to drive innovation. Through the SOSCIP Community Fellowship, we encourage innovators & entrepreneurs from equity-seeking & equity-deserving groups to realize their dreams and ambitions via access to world-class computing platforms & collaboration opportunities with Ontario’s elite colleges, universities, and businesses.
The SOSCIP Community Fellowship is $10,000 awarded to the Academic PI of a successful SOSCIP application. SOSCIP will award four Community Fellowships through a competitive process.
SOSCIP will waive the access fees for each application that meets all standard SOSCIP eligibility criteria and successfully passes review. The award is to be only used for project-related HQP salaries.
Please note that research activities carried out in the context of COVID-19 need to adhere to the University of Guelph COVID-19 research principles, policies, guidelines and processes as they may be updated from time to time and communicated on the Office of Research web-page.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
