PURPOSE AND MANDATE

The Smallwood Centre was established with funds transferred in trust from the J.R. Smallwood Heritage Foundation. The Centre 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 Centre is governed by a board appointed by the Board of Regents. Members normally belong to the Faculty of Arts at Memorial University and represent disciplines active in Newfoundland 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. Full details of grant categories and application procedures are available on the Centre's web site:
