Description:

Partnership Development Grants provide support to:

  • develop research and related activities in the social sciences and humanities, including knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and new scholars, by fostering new research partnership activities involving existing and/or potential partners; or
  • design and test new partnership approaches for research and/or related activities that may result in best practices or models that either can be adapted by others or have the potential to be scaled up at a regional, national or international level.

Partnership Grants provide support for new and existing formal partnerships over four to seven years. Partnerships must advance research and/or knowledge mobilization in the social sciences and humanities through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, as well as through resources as evidenced by cash and/or in-kind contributions.

Eligibility: The applicant must hold an academic appointment with a significant research component at UWO and must be eligible to hold a research account at UWO.
Partnership Development Grant
applications must be submitted by the applicant (principal investigator / project director) on behalf of the partners of the formal partnership.
Partnership Grant Applications must be submitted by a postsecondary institution or a not-for-profit organization. The applicant prepares the application in collaboration with, and on behalf of, the partners.

Priority Areas:

Most SSHRC funding is awarded through open competitions accessible to all disciplines, areas, themes and approaches. In certain cases, priorities have been identified for either additional support and/or a more tailored adjudication. One of SSHRC’s current priority areas may be relevant to your proposal:

  1. Aboriginal Research
  2. Canadian Environmental Issues
  3. Digital Media
  4. Innovation, Leadership and Prosperity
  5. Northern Communities—Towards Social and Economic Prosperity
