SSHRC’s Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and outreach activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating. Events and outreach activities funded by a Connection Grant may often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive and longer-term projects potentially eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities.

Events: $7,000 – $25,000
Outreach Activities: $7,000 – $50,000 (potentially higher amounts)

Matching Funds: SSHRC will not fund the full cost of any connection event or outreach activity. Additional support in the form of cash and/or in-kind contributions (excluding registration fees), equivalent to a minimum of 50% of the amount requested from SSHRC, must come from sponsoring organizations. Please contact your ADR for assistance in securing matching funds from Western and your faculty well in advance of the deadline.
