Amount: $7,000 – $25,000 (over one year)
Faculty Research Office: 1 week prior to SSHRC deadline. (If you wish to have feedback on your application allow at least two weeks – contact Karen Kueneman)

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.
