Knowledge Synthesis Grants (KSG) support researchers in producing knowledge synthesis reports and evidence briefs that support the use of evidence in decision-making and the application of best practices; and assist in developing future research agendas.
Amount: up to $30,000
Faculty Research Office: one week prior to agency deadline (for internal review of draft application allow 2-3 weeks)
Western Research: 1 week prior to agency deadline
SSHRC: September 1, 2022 (results available March 2023)
Description: Across Canada, people continue daily to face violence because of their gender, gender expression, gender identity or perceived gender. SSHRC and Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) are inviting applications to synthesize existing research knowledge and identify knowledge opportunities and gaps on gender-based violence. This call for proposals focuses on the state of knowledge on gender-based violence (GBV) in Canada such as the impact of GBV on different populations, the efficacy of services addressing and preventing GBV, or the needs of victims and survivors of GBV. The KSGs on gender-based violence will support synthesizing existing knowledge and identifying knowledge gaps on this topic and stimulate knowledge mobilization. By reaching a variety of audiences, including decision-makers, this knowledge can, ultimately, contribute towards a Canada free of gender-based violence.
NOTE: Knowledge Synthesis Grants are not intended to support original research. Rather, they are intended to support the synthesis of existing research knowledge and the identification of knowledge gaps.
