Connection Grants Funding Opportunity
SSHRC continues implementation of its renewed program architecture with the launch of the Connection Grants funding opportunity. The description is now available on the SSHRC website. The application form and instructions are now available here .
The Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and outreach activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating.
SSHRC invites applicants who wish to conduct workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes or other events or outreach activities that facilitate:
• Disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary exchanges in the humanities and social sciences;
• Scholarly exchanges between those working in the social sciences and humanities and those working in other research fields;
• Intersectoral exchanges between academic researchers in the humanities and social sciences and researchers and practitioners from the public, private and/or not-for-profit sectors; and/or
• International research collaboration and scholarly exchanges between researchers, students and non-academic partners from other countries.
These grants are valued at $7,000 to $50,000, with higher amounts considered on an exceptional basis, over one year. Starting in April 2012, SSHRC will accept applications on a continuous basis and will announce results normally within eight weeks from the date that SSHRC confirms receipt of the application.
Over the past three years, SSHRC has awarded an average of $6 million per year to support the types of events and outreach activities expected to be proposed and funded through the Connection funding opportunity. The approximate budget available for new awards in 2012-13 will be announced in spring 2012 under the Connection Program on SSHRC’s website.
