The SSHRC Partnership Engage Grant supports collaboration between researchers and a single partner organization from the not-for-profit, public or private sector.
Partnership Engage Grants 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. These small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships 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 encourage non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers to access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.
There are four application cycles per year: September 15, December 15, March 15 and June 15. Partnership Engage Grants are valued at $7,000 to $25,000 for one year.
Decisions are communicated to at the end of each funding cycle (November, February, May, August)
Up to one month before your target deadline
September, December, March or June (month of target deadline)
