SSHRC COVID-19 Funding Opportunity

Mon. Apr. 27, 2020

The potential contributions of researchers from the humanities and social sciences, including Indigenous research, are considerable – from highlighting the lessons of history, to probing individual and group behaviour, to exploring possible responses in policy and practice from  all sectors and disciplines, be it education, arts, economics, etc.

The PEG COVID-19 Special Initiative provides short-term and timely support for small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships through Partnership Engage Grants (PEG). This Special Initiative will allow researchers and their partners the possibility to address urgent and specific needs, as well as challenges or opportunities through collaborations. It will also provide a unique opportunity to foster knowledge exchange between postsecondary researchers and different sectors of society while including students, PhDs, PDFs and other HQPs on the COVID-19 crisis related issues, challenges and impacts.

SSHRC is committed to investing up to $1.5 M over the next two PEG competitions (June 15 and Sept 15) to support COVID-19 related projects. Grants are valued at a maximum amount of $25K per project for duration of one year.

Further details, including application information, are available on SSHRC Partnership Engage Grants or contact Jill Condra at
