SSHRC Connection Grants
Sponsor: Social Science and Humanities Research Council
Value: Events: $7,000 to $25,000
Outreach activities: $7,000 to $50,000; higher amounts may be considered if well justified
For 1 year
Description: These 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.
SSHRC will not fund the full cost of any Connection project. Additional support in the form of eligible cash and/or in-kind contributions (excluding registration fees) equivalent to a minimum of 50% of the amount requested from SSHRC must come from sponsoring organizations.
*Please be advised that the Faculty of Education’s RISS program offers matching funds for Connection Grants projects lead by Faculty PIs. The deadline for applying to RISS is January 11, 2021. Please contact Robert Olaj if you have questions related to the RISS program.
