SSHRC Partnership Engage Grants

Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Partnership Engage Grants were introduced to better address the short-term research needs, challenges and opportunities facing organizations in the not-for-profit, public and private sectors. A summary is provided below.

Objectives are to

  • 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;
  • respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors; and
  • allow non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers to access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.

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

SSHRC invites all applicants to review Imagining Canada’s Future’s 16 future global challenges and to consider addressing one or more of these areas in their research proposal.
