Funded Research

Our top notch research excels in grant funding competitions. Grants help us continue creating value for students and communities, and improve the quality of teaching and learning at York. These funds are also a vote of confidence in our research from third-party experts in government, industry and academia. We look forward to passing on the benefits to our students and the communities. Here is a sample summary of some of our recent successful grants.
