Canada: Submit Proposals for 2021 Partnership Engage Grants Program
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has launched a call for proposals for the 2021 Partnership Engage Grants Program to 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 collaborates with organizations from across the not-for-profit, private and public sectors to support and promote training, research and connection activities in the social sciences and humanities. SSHRC’s joint initiatives are designed to reflect its strategic objectives and mandate, inform decision-makers, and, in certain cases, address specific needs of its partners.
Partnership Engage Grants are valued at $7,000 to $25,000 for one year.
An individual is eligible to be a co-applicant if they are formally affiliated with any of the following:
Canadian: Eligible postsecondary institution; not-for-profit organization; philanthropic foundation; think tank; or municipal, territorial or provincial government.
International: Postsecondary institution.
Postdoctoral researchers who are affiliated with a postsecondary institution are eligible to be co-applicants.
Students are not eligible for applicant or co-applicant status on a Partnership Engage Grant.
