SSHRC Partnership Development Grants 2021 Competition
Academic Unit: Inquire within your unit
Memorial Deadline: Friday 5th, November 2021
External Deadline: Monday 15th, November 2021
These grants provide support over one to three years to teams/partnerships, led by a project director, to:
- develop research and/or related activities in the social sciences and humanities—these can include knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and emerging scholars, by fostering new partnerships with existing and/or potential partners; or
- design and test new partnership approaches for research and/or related activities that can result in best practices or models—these can either be adapted by others or have the potential to be scaled up to a regional, national or international level.
Partnership funding is intended for formal partnerships between postsecondary institutions and/or organizations of various types. For more information, see the definitions for formal partnership and partner organization.
The quality of training, mentoring and employability plans for students and emerging scholars will be evaluated as an important part of the proposed initiative. SSHRC’s Guidelines for Effective Research Training explain how students and emerging scholars can meaningfully participate in proposed initiatives.
The intellectual leadership and governance for the creation of a formal partnership can come from the research community and/or from partner organizations from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. However, only an institution that meets the institutional eligibility requirements can administer the grant funding, once awarded. For more information, see Eligibility.
SSHRC invites applicants and their partner organizations who wish to propose formal disciplinary, interdisciplinary, inter institutional, international and/or cross-sector partnership arrangements to apply for support through this funding opportunity. Funds are available to support a variety of formal partnership development initiatives in all of the disciplines and themes that meet SSHRC’s subject matter eligibility guidelines.
For tools and resources to assist with the planning and implementation of your partnership, see SSHRC’s Partnerships Tool-Kit.
