The arrival of Syrian refugees in Canada is a rare event, full of challenges for both the refugees themselves and for all Canadians. Governments and communities will need access to the latest knowledge to develop best practices in supporting and resettling refugees. With this in mind, this special call seeks to support research and mobilize knowledge in a timely way on key issues and events—such as education, employment, skills development, social integration and security—in the early days of the migration and resettlement process.
This joint initiative aims to support targeted, practical and actionable research projects capable of delivering initial findings within six months to one year.
Applicants must be currently involved, or have been involved within the past six (6) years, as a principal investigator, project director or co-investigator in a SSHRC-funded project and must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution at the time of application.
Postdoctoral researchers must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution before the grant is awarded, and maintain such an affiliation for the duration of the grant period.
Up to $25,000 – Up to 10 grants may be awarded
Successful applicants or their delegates will be expected to present available results at a session or workshop at the 2017 National Metropolis Conference. Travel costs for the conference should be included in the budget submitted as part of the application.
