Partnership Development Grants provide support, up to $200,000 over one to three years, for new or existing partnerships to:
- develop research and related activities in the social sciences and humanities, including knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and new scholars; or
- design and test new partnership approaches for research and/or related activities that may result in best practices or models that either can be adapted by others or have the potential to be scaled up to a regional, national or international level.
The federal budget, as noted in the 2012 Economic Action Plan, announced an increase of $7 million per year to SSHRC for industry-academic partnerships to commence in 2012-13.   As a result, SSHRC encourages applicants to involve partners from the private sector, including associations.



Please note that, as indicated in SSHRC’s regulations governing multiple applications, researchers who have been named Project Directors for a Partnership Grant in 2012 are not eligible to apply to Partnership Development Grants in 2012, whether successful in the Partnership Grant competition or not. 


For all questions related to SSHRC funding opportunities, please contact joanna [dot] mastalerek [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Joanna Mastalerek), Grants Officer, Office of Sponsored Research.
