New! SSHRC Partnership Engage Grants: Deadline Sept. 15, 2017

Posted on: Jul 11, 2017

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has announced the launch of a NEW funding opportunity: Partnership Engage Grants! The deadline to submit applications for the inaugural competition is September 15, 2017. This grant has a streamlined application process and four deadlines per year, with a quick adjudication.

These one-year grants, valued between $7000 to $25000, are intended to support a partnership between a researcher and a not-for-profit, public or private sector partner organization.

This new funding opportunity allows non-academic organizations and post-secondary researchers to work together to benefit from each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest. These grants support short-term research activities that will inform decision-making at the partner organization in the public, private or not-for-profit sector. These small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships should respond to an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity. 

“We look forward to the innovative ideas and tangible outcomes that collaboration with new partner organizations will produce.” -Ted Hewitt, SSHRC president.
