SKIPP Granting Programs

SKIPP funding supports the development of Indigenous-engaged research projects for both faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. 


 

The Kule Institute for Advanced Study and SKIPP have partnered on this year's SKIPP Seed Grants (SSGs) to support Indigenous research and teaching activities at the University of Alberta.

The primary goal of this grant is to support scholarly activities that center Indigenous or anti-colonial / decolonial methodologies and ways of learning. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to: research development, community engaged research activities, development or enhancement of Indigenous teaching activities, and support in developing and applying for larger grants through SSHRC or other granting agencies. 

Funding Amount: Up to $5,000 each

When to Apply: Deadline January 15, 2022

Who Can Apply: The SKIPP Seed Grant (SSG) is open to continuing faculty members, librarians, and academic teaching staff. All disciplines are eligible for funding. 

Selection Criteria: This grant can be used for either: 

  1. Supporting or enhancing existing Indigenous engaged research on campus that requires additional support and resources to develop a research project and apply for larger grants.
  2. Carrying out a specific research or research creation project.
  3. Developing or enhancing teaching activities that engage Indigenous ways of knowing and being.

Note: If you are seeking to develop meaningful and respectful relationships with Indigenous partners in pursuit of Indigenous research we suggest you also consider the Indigenous Engaged Research Grant Program through the Vice-President (Research and Innovation).

How to Apply: Send an email to skipp@ualberta.ca with your request and a 2-3 page research plan. We would like to know what the focus of the research or teaching project will be, who will be involved, and for what SKIPP support you need. Please include:

  • Name of principal investigator (PI) and affiliation
  • Names of collaborators and affiliations (community & university collaborators)
  • Title of project / proposal
  • Description of project. Please consider including how it will engage with local communities, how it will build research capacity, outcomes and / or anticipated next steps.
  • Brief budget with one or two lines of explanation of items. Budget items should be eligible expenses under the Tri-Agency Guide on Financial Administration.

Grant submissions are reviewed by a SKIPP review panel. All applicants will be notified about the status of their application.
