Partnership Development Grants │ Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council


$75,000 to $200,000


Partnership Development Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and/or the Connection program.

These grants provide support over one to three years to teams/partnerships, led by a project director, to:

  • develop research and/or related activities in the social sciences and humanities—these can include knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and emerging scholars, by fostering new partnerships with existing and/or potential partners; or
  • design and test new partnership approaches for research and/or related activities that can result in best practices or models—these can either be adapted by others or have the potential to be scaled up to a regional, national or international level.

Eligible Applicants

  • Applications can be submitted by a team of researchers (consisting of one applicant / project director and one or more co-applicants and / or co-directors and/or collaborators). The applicant / project director prepares the application on behalf of the partner organizations of the formal partnership.
  • Applicants (except postdoctoral researchers and students) must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian institution that meets the institutional eligibility requirements. Researchers who maintain an affiliation with a Canadian postsecondary institution, but whose primary affiliation is with a non-Canadian postsecondary institution, are not eligible for applicant status.

Eligible Expenses

Two categories of partnerships can request support:

  • existing partnerships to foster new research and/or research-related partnership activities that are distinct from the partnership’s previous/ongoing partnership activities; and
  • new partnerships to foster new research and/or research-related partnership activities that are undertaken by partnerships in their initial stages.
