New SSHRC funding opportunitiesThe Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council will be hosting an information session Sept. 30 for all interested faculty in order to explain two new funding opportunities. These new opportunities will replace previous programs such as the CURA and the MCRI.
Jacque Critchleys, a senior program officer at SSHRC, will be on hand to outline the changes to SSHRC programs and to answer any questions. Mr. Critchleys will also explain how the new funding opportunities are situated within SSHRC’s new program architecture, provide information about application requirements for the new grants and will explain best practices.
Partnerships development grants offer awards in the range of $75,000-$200,000 over one to three years and provide support to develop research and related activities in the social sciences and humanities, including knowledge mobilization, by incubating new partnership activities for both existing and potential partners.
Partnership grants offer awards in the range of $500,000-$2.5 million, over four to seven years and are designed to support formal partnerships that will advance research and/or knowledge mobilization in the social sciences and humanities through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership.
The information session will take place Sept. 30 in the Genesis boardroom, IIC-3001, from 12-3 p.m.
