Opportunity

SSHRC Partnership Grants support formal partnerships between academic researchers, businesses and other partners that will advance knowledge and understanding on critical issues of intellectual, social, economic and cultural significance. By fostering mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, the grants allow partners to innovate, build institutional capacity and mobilize research knowledge in accessible ways.

Partnership Grants undergo a two-stage adjudication process at SSHRC, involving a Stage 1 – Letter of Intent and a Stage 2 – Formal Application (by invitation). SSHRC Partnership Grants are Institutional awards which include significant leveraging of cash and in-kind support from the host institution.

To support the development of the strongest proposals possible and determine the level of institutional support, researchers intending to apply to SSHRC for a Partnership Grant must follow the multi-phase internal review process adopted by Carleton University.
