Partnership Engage Grants
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) recently introduced a Partnership Engage Grant to better address the short-term needs, challenges and opportunities of researchers and institutions.
The grants will have a value of between $7,000 and $25,000, and will put a strong emphasis on the relevance to, and involvement of, partner organizations. However, they will require fewer partners than the existing Partnership and Partnership Development Grants, as they are designed for a single partner organization from the not-for-profit, public or private sector. The Partnership Engage Grants will also have a more streamlined application process, and be offered four times a year as opposed to once a year as is the case for other Partnership grants.
“We heard from researchers and potential partners, particularly in the private and not-for-profit sectors, that there is a real need for more flexibility and responsiveness in our suite of partnership funding opportunities. I think Partnership Engage Grants will be an exciting way to respond to this need,” said Dominique Bérubé, vice-president, Research Programs.
The Partnership Engage Grants launched June 2017. The deadline for the inaugural competition is September 15, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified in December 2017.
