SSHRC and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation have launched a new joint initiative. The Reconciliation Network funding opportunity invites research teams led by First Nations, Métis Nation or Inuit researchers to submit proposals for new or existing formal partnerships that contribute to our collective understanding of truth and reconciliation. The opportunity is part of the response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 65.
Amount: up to $1 million (up to $200,000 per year for 5 years)
Faculty Research Office: 1 week prior to SSHRC deadline. (If you wish to have feedback on your application allow at least two-three weeks – contact Karen Kueneman)
Western Research: 1 week prior to SSHRC deadline (to be confirmed)
SSHRC: May 15, 2023
Objectives: The main objective of the Reconciliation Network in Response to Call 65 is to award grants to provide support for new and existing formal partnerships over five years to advance research, research training and knowledge mobilization in the social sciences and humanities. This is done through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, as well as through resources as shown by cash and/or in-kind contributions.
Eligibility: This funding opportunity is open to First Nations, Métis Nation and Inuit researchers affiliated with an eligible Canadian institution (university, college, not-for-profit organization) at the time of application. Western applicants must hold an eligible academic research appointment at Western.
Partner organizations can be Canadian or international institutions or organizations (public, private, not-for-profit) of any type. Indigenous organizations, Indigenous governments and Indigenous not-for-profit organizations are all welcome to partner. Although partner organizations are normally expected to support the activities of the partnership through cash and/or in-kind contributions, in an effort to alleviate barriers to all communities’ participation, partners unable to provide cash and/or in-kind contributions may explain alternative support in their letters.
Please contact Karen Kueneman if you intend to apply.
