Program Guide & Application Information

Description

Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and the Connection program. They provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through the Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.

SSHRC welcomes applications involving Aboriginal research, as well as those involving research-creation.

SSHRC invites all applicants to review Imagining Canada’s Future’s six future challenge areas and subquestions, and to consider addressing one or more of these areas in their research proposal. Summary reports related to the Knowledge Synthesis Grants for each future challenge area have identified possible gaps in current knowledge, which applicants may wish to further explore. While this is not an evaluation criterion for merit review, SSHRC monitors research capacity in these areas, and develops and implements strategies and knowledge mobilization activities to enhance the contribution of the humanities and social sciences across the six challenge areas.

Eligibility

Subject matter

Most SSHRC funding is awarded through open competitions. Proposals may involve any disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for SSHRC funding. Please see Subject Matter Eligibility for more information. Projects whose primary objective is curriculum development are not eligible for funding.

Applicants

Applicants must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution at the time of application. Applicants who have received a SSHRC grant of any type but have failed to submit an end of grant 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. 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.

Postdoctoral researchers are eligible to be applicants if they have formally established an affiliation with an eligible institution at the time of application, and maintain such an affiliation for the duration of the grant period.

Co-applicants

Co-applicants may be individuals from any of the following:

  • Canadian: Postsecondary institutions; not-for-profit organizations; philanthropic foundations; think tanks; and municipal, territorial or provincial governments.

  • International: Postsecondary institutions.

Collaborators

Any individual who may make a significant contribution to the project is eligible to be a collaborator. Collaborators do not need to be affiliated with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution. Individuals from the private sector or federal government may only participate as collaborators.

Multiple Applications

Individuals may apply for only one Partnership Engage Grant per calendar year. In addition, current Partnership Engage Grant holders may not submit a new Partnership Engage Grant application until their current grant is no longer active. Please refer to SSHRC’s regulations regarding multiple applications for more information.

Partner organizations

Only one Canadian or international organization from the public, private and/or non-profit sector may be involved as a partner organization. Partner organizations are expected to support the activities of the partnership through cash and/or in-kind contributions. Researchers involved in formal partnerships that involve more than one partner organization are encouraged to apply for Partnership Development Grants or Partnership Grants.

Institutions

Grant funds may only be administered by an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution. Institutions proposing to administer any grant awarded under this funding opportunity must hold or obtain institutional eligibility.

$7,000 to $25,000

Note: Salary research allowance - Co-applicants from eligible not-for-profit organizations may request a salary research allowance to release them from duties to their organization.
