The Department of Elementary Education is excited to announce that a number of our colleagues received research grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). These grants fund their scholarship and research over a number of years.

Notably, Carla Peck's project Thinking Historically for Canada's Future, received $2.5 million. Additional funding from partners, comprising 17 universities and 31 educational and history organizations, brings the project budget to more than $8.6 million over seven years.

"These grants are recognition of the important scholarship that faculty members and students in the Department of Elementary Education are engaged in," said Jerine Pegg, department chair.

"Receiving SSHRC funding is a very competitive process and we are excited to see their work recognized in this way. The projects that this funding will support will have direct impacts on students and educational systems in Alberta and across Canada."

Congratulations to all the grant recipients in our department. We are so proud to see your scholarship acknowledged nationally.
