SSHRC has announced an upcoming Knowledge Synthesis Grants competition. This competition will be launched in support of the objectives of the Imagining Canada’s Future initiative, with a focus on one of the six future challenge areas. The knowledge synthesis will address the challenge area of: What new ways of learning, particularly in higher education, will Canadians need to thrive in an evolving society and labour market?
These grants are not intended to support original research, rather they are intended to support the synthesis of existing research knowledge on the topic and the identification of knowledge gaps. The call for proposals is scheduled to be released on SSHRC’s website in early January 2015, with an application deadline in late February 2015. Results will be announced in March 2015.
Up to 15 awards valued at up to $25,000 each will be awarded. The synthesis reports will be due no later than end September 2015 and award holders will be requested to participate in two workshop meetings in Ottawa. These will be scheduled in early Spring and late Fall.
