SSHRC Funding Opportunity: Race, Gender, and Diversity Initiative

Updated: Aug 6, 2021

CCBR has been advocating for inclusion through community driven research for decades. See the CCBR blog in which we call for more community-driven research funding.

We are pleased to share that the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) launched an initiative to support more community-led research projects. This initiative is on the themes of race, gender and diversity and will aim to provide financial support for partnership research to inform actions that address social disparities related to race, gender, and other forms of diversity. Researchers from not-for-profit organizations, in partnership with postsecondary institutions, can submit applications for projects that are community-led and community based, and which are based on the lived experience of underrepresented and disadvantaged groups, including but not limited to women; First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples; people living with disabilities; racialized communities; religious minorities; and LGBTQ2+ people, as well as individuals who identify as, or belong to, more than one of these groups. Proposals due November 15, 2021. Read more >
