  • Deadline - Full Application: April 29 @ Noon

SSHRC Connection Grants are offered four times a year to support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating. Events and outreach activities funded by a Connection Grant may often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive and longer-term projects potentially eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities. SSHRC welcomes applications involving research-creation, as well as indigenous research
