Description: The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest. They are designed for a single partner organization. Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of SSHRC’s Insight and Connection programs.
Eligibility: Applicants must hold an eligible academic research appointment at Western.
Only one organization may be involved as a partner organization.
Individuals may apply for only one Partnership Engage Grant per calendar year.
Please contact Karen Kueneman if you intend to apply.
