Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and 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 to $25,000
Outreach activities: $7,000 to $50,000; higher amounts may be considered if well justified
Connection Grants support workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes, or other events or outreach activities that facilitate:
- disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary exchanges in the humanities and social sciences;
- scholarly exchanges between those working in the social sciences and humanities and those working in other research fields;
- intersectoral exchanges between academic researchers in the humanities and social sciences and researchers and practitioners from the public, private and/or not-for-profit sectors; and/or
- international research collaboration and scholarly exchanges with researchers, students and non-academic partners from other countries.
Important note: Applicants must commit an additional 50% of what is requested from SSHRC as cash and/or in-kind from partner organizations (contributions from individuals do not count toward the 50% match) at the time of application. For example, if you request $25,000 from SSHRC, you must come up with $12,500 in cash and/or valuated in-kind.
The Faculty of Education’s Research Infrastructure Support Services (RISS) program offers up to $10,000 in competitive cash funding as a match for Connection Grants. See here for deadlines and RISS eligibility criteria: https://ore.educ.ubc.ca/research/riss-program/
