SSHRC Partnership Engage Grants, deadline December 15th

Posted on: Nov 1, 2019

The Office of Research Services invites all interested Faculty Members to apply for SSHRC Partnership Engage Grants. For tips on this funding stream, please review this presentation from Queens University.

If you are interested in applying, please contact the Office of Research Services.

Any application for External Research Funding requires the submission of an External Grant Institutional Signature Page at least seven working days before submission to the sponsor. Consult our website for more information.



Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and the Connection program. Please note that Partnership Engage Grants cannot respond exclusively to the objectives of the Connection program.

These grants provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.

SSHRC welcomes applications involving Indigenous research, as well as those involving research-creation

Partner organizations

Only one Canadian or international organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector may be involved as a partner organization. Postsecondary institutions, as well as any organization or association affiliated with or servicing them, are not eligible as partner organizations. Partner organizations are expected to support the activities of the partnership through cash and/or in-kind contributions.

No specific funding amount is expected from the partner, but the value of their contributions, both in-kind and in-cash, must be noted.
