Connection Grants support workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes or other events or outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to mobilize research with those participating.
These grants are typically valued at $7,000 to $50,000 over one year, with higher amounts considered on an exceptional basis.
Additional support in the form of eligible cash and/or in-kind contributions (excluding registration fees), equivalent to a minimum of 50 per cent of the amount requested from SSHRC, must come from sponsoring organizations.
