Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation - Connection Grants

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has launched a new tri-agency program, which invites proposals from applicants affiliated with First Nations, Métis and Inuit not-for-profit organizations, as well as with other not-for-profit organizations or Canadian postsecondary institutions (including colleges) in any discipline.

The initiative will support short-term targeted interdisciplinary events, outreach activities and position papers to help guide new ways of engaging in research by and with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. This will include holistic, interdisciplinary and distinctions-based approaches that are transformative and contribute to reconciliation. These Connection Grants are valued at up to $50,000 for six months, with the possibility of a six-month extension. The leadership and governance of all proposed projects must involve the participation of First Nations, Métis or Inuit communities.  Applications are due September 6, 2018 (8:00 p.m. Eastern). ARIE can support Seneca faculty who are interested in pursuing this research opportunity.  Faculty should advise ARIE ASAP if they have interest in this program, with copy to their Academic Chair.
