Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating. Events and outreach activities funded by a Connection Grant may often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive and longer-term projects potentially eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities.

Connection Grants proposals are expected to meet the objectives of the Connection program.

Connection Grants support workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes or other events or outreach activities that facilitate:

  • – disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary exchanges in the humanities and social sciences;
  • – scholarly exchanges between those working in the social sciences and humanities and those working in other research fields;
  • – intersectoral exchanges between academic researchers in the humanities and social sciences and researchers and practitioners from the public, private and/or not-for-profit sectors; and/or
  • – international research collaboration and scholarly exchanges with researchers, students and non-academic partners from other countries.

Additional program details are available on SSHRC’s website.
