The J. R. Smallwood competition is held once a year. The deadline for applications is November 1.

Currently the Foundation offers funding under three grant categories: the Research Grant, the Conference Grant and the Publication Subvention Grant. Please note the Publication Subvention Grant is only awarded if funds allow.

The deadline for applications for the Fall competition is November 1. 

Applications are adjudicated by an Awards Panel which makes recommendations to the Executive Committee. Applications may be made by Social Science and Humanities scholars, regardless of affiliation, who are working in research on Newfoundland and Labrador.

More information and applications forms for these grants are included in this site.

The Foundation may consider requests for funding other activities that do not meet the criteria of the three grant categories but are closely related to the Foundation's mandate. Funds for this purpose are quite limited and any requests should be made according to the deadlines for Grants to allow for the possibility of seeking the Awards Panel's advice.

Enquiries and proposals should be addressed to
