Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants starting at $75,000 to Canada researchers affiliated with a qualifying IHE to develop teams and partnerships for projects in the humanities and social sciences disciplines. Institutions that do not currently have approval must contact the funding source at least five business days prior to the deadline.

Partnership Development Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight Program: (http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/umbrella_programs-programme_cadre/insight-savoir-eng.aspx#a3) and/or the Connection Program: (http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/umbrella_programs-programme_cadre/connection-connexion-eng.aspx#a3).

Partnership Development Grants provide support over one to three years to teams/partnerships, led by a project director, to:

  • Develop research and/or related activities in the social sciences and humanities, including knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and emerging scholars, by fostering new partnerships with 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 to a regional, national or international level.
Partnership funding is intended for teams working in formal collaboration between postsecondary institutions and/or organizations of various types.
Two categories of partnerships may request support:
  • Existing partnerships: Support to foster new research and/or research-related partnership activities that are distinct from the partnership’s previous/ongoing partnership activities.
  • New partnerships: Support to foster new research and/or research-related partnership activities that are undertaken by partnerships in their initial stages.

Following is a list of possible formal partnership approaches. Applicants are in no way limited to these approaches, and are welcome to combine some of the features described below.

  • Disciplinary and interdisciplinary research partnerships: Interinstitutional research initiatives designed to make a significant contribution to advancing knowledge and understanding in the humanities and/or social sciences. While SSHRC welcomes proposals for interdisciplinary research partnerships involving natural sciences, engineering and/or health partner organizations, partnerships of this nature must follow SSHRC’s policy regarding the eligibility of subject matter.
  • Cross-sector co-creation of knowledge and understanding: Partnerships to foster innovative research, training and the co-creation of new knowledge on critical issues of intellectual, social, economic and cultural significance.
  • Networks for research and/or related activities: Networks designed to advance the innovative co-creation of knowledge, as well as training and mobilization of research, on critical issues of intellectual, social, economic and cultural significance.
  • Partnered knowledge mobilization: Partnerships designed to synthesize, apply and mobilize new and existing social sciences research knowledge in accessible ways to build institutional capacity and to increase the national and international impact and stature of Canadian research.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Partnership Development Grants are valued at $75,000 to $200,000.

Term of Contract:

Grant duration is 1 - 3 years.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications may be submitted by a team of researchers (consisting of one applicant / project director and one or more co-applicants and/or collaborators). The applicant / project director prepares the application on behalf of the partner organizations of the formal partnership.

Applicants (except postdoctoral researchers and students) must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution at the time of application. Researchers who maintain an affiliation with a Canadian postsecondary institution, but whose primary affiliation is with a non-Canadian postsecondary institution, are not eligible for applicant status.

Applicants who have received a SSHRC grant of any type but have failed to submit an end of grant report / achievement report by the deadline specified in their Notice of Award are not eligible to apply for another SSHRC grant until they have submitted the report.

Postdoctoral researchers are eligible to be applicants if they have formally established an affiliation with an eligible institution within five months of the grant start date, and maintain such an affiliation for the duration of the grant period.

Students enrolled in a program of study are not eligible to apply. However, a PhD candidate is eligible to apply if they:
- Will have met all requirements for the PhD before the grant is awarded, including all course work and successful defence of their dissertation; and
- Establish a formal affiliation with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution within five months of the grant start date, and maintain such an affiliation for the duration of the grant period.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants are expected to include a plan to seek and secure cash and/or in-kind support for their initiative during the life of the grant. While there is no minimum contribution requirement, institutions and their partner organizations are expected to demonstrate that a formal partnership currently exists, or is in the process of being developed, by supporting the activities of the formal partnership through cash and/or in-kind contributions.

All not-for-profit organizations that require institutional eligibility must contact SSHRC at least five business days prior to the application deadline to begin the eligibility process.

Applicants needing help while preparing their application should communicate with SSHRC well in advance of the application deadline.

The application deadline is 8:00 PM Eastern on November 15, 2019.

Results will be announced March 2020.

If a deadline falls on a weekend or a Canadian public holiday, the online application system will remain open until 8:00 PM (eastern) on the next business day.
