SSHRC Connection Grants

Overview: Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives, including workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes, and other events or outreach activities. Connection Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Research Partnerships program.

Value: Events: $7,000 to $25,000; Outreach activities: $7,000 to $50,000; higher amounts can be considered if well justified. 

SSHRC will not fund the full cost of any Connection Grant project. Additional support in the form of eligible cash and/or in-kind contributions equivalent to a minimum of 50% of the amount requested from SSHRC must come from sponsoring organizations. Applicants must provide letters of support from sponsoring organizations that clearly confirm the amounts and types of contributions the organizations are providing for the proposed event or activity.
