Responding to the objectives of SSHRC’s Insight, Connection and Talent program, Partnership Grants provide support for new and existing formal partnerships over four to seven years to advance research, research training and/or knowledge mobilization in the social sciences and humanities through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, as well as through resources as evidenced by cash and/or in-kind contributions.


Partnership Grants are intended for large teams of postsecondary institutions and/or organizations of various types that work in formal collaboration. The quality of training, mentoring and employability plans for students and emerging scholars will be evaluated as an important part of the proposed initiative. Proposals can involve any disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for SSHRC funding.

All applications, including those led by McMaster and those where we partner on proposals led by other institutions, require Faculty endorsement.
