Partnership Grants provide support for new and existing formal partnerships to advance research, research training and/or knowledge mobilization through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership. These grants are intended for large teams working in formal collaboration between post-secondary institutions and/or organizations of various types. Partnership Grants are highly competitive, and typically involve many partners who make cash and/or in-kind contributions, and overall support to the project.

Deadlines (Stage 1):
Faculty Research Office:  at least 3-4 weeks before agency deadline if you wish feedback on your application – submit to Karen Kueneman

Note: Partnership Grants require 35% matching  cash and/or in-kind contributions from sources other than SSHRC.
