Description: SSHRC Exchange Grants support the organization of small-scale knowledge mobilization activities, such as workshops and seminars, to encourage collaboration and the dissemination of research results both within and beyond the academic community. They may also allow researchers to attend or present their research at scholarly conferences and other dissemination venues that align with SSHRC’s mandate to advance their careers and encourage the exchange of ideas and research results at the national and international level.
Eligibility: Applicants must hold an eligible academic research appointment at Western.
NOTE: Researchers can only submit one application for the Exchange Grant competition and one application for the Explore Grant competition. Eligible researchers may apply for both grants; however only one grant can be awarded per researcher (i.e., a researcher cannot be awarded both an Explore Grant and an Exchange Grant). If a researcher decides to apply for both grants, the review committee reserves the right to decide which grant (if any) will be awarded to that researcher.
