PURPOSE AND MANDATE

The Smallwood Foundation was established with funds transferred in trust from the J.R. Smallwood Heritage Foundation. The Foundation administers the income from such funds for the promotion and support of research focusing on Newfoundland and Labrador. The board supports research proposals in the humanities and social sciences from both inside and outside the university community.

ORGANIZATION

The Foundation is governed by a board appointed by the Board of Regents. Members normally belong to the Faculty of Arts at the University and represent disciplines active in Newfoundland and Labrador Studies. In accordance with its mandate, the board awards grants to individual scholars and organizations which have clearly defined objectives and which serve to develop the academic understanding and general appreciation of the province's society, history and culture.
