Contracts and Overhead Charges

All research funding applications that are to be administered by StFX should include administrative overhead charges wherever applicable.  Some research funding programs do not permit overhead charges (e.g. federal tri-agency funding programs, since universities receive these through the federal Research Support Fund).  Some funding agencies and programs have fixed percentages of overhead charges that can be applied in a given research application.

Industry Partnering

Industry Sponsored Research

StFX contributes to economic development and diversification by sharing its research expertise and facilities with industry and government, provided that the work is not undertaken in competition with the private sector and that the university's academic goals are not compromised.
