Partnership Grants │ Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council


Stage 1: up to $20,000; Stage 2 (by invitation only): up to $2.5 million


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. This is done through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, as well as through resources as shown 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.

Eligible Applicants

Applications must be submitted by an eligible Canadian institution. The project director must be affiliated with the host institution (the applicant), and prepares the application on behalf of the host institution and the formal partnership. The term “institution” from here on in this description refers to both postsecondary institutions and not‑for‑profit organizations.

Project directors who have received a SSHRC grant of any type but have failed to submit an achievement report by the deadline specified in their Notice of Award are not eligible to apply for another SSHRC grant until they have submitted the report.

Eligible Expenses

Partnership Grants undergo a two-stage adjudication process. Only applicants successful in Stage 1 will be invited to apply in Stage 2.

Stage 1: Applications successful in Stage 1 are valued at up to $20,000. These funds help applicants successful in Stage 1 to prepare for the Stage 2 application, that is, to:

  • further refine the question(s) to be addressed;
  • establish partnership arrangements, a governance structure and/or an approach/methodology; and
  • consolidate their collaborative activities.

Stage 2 (by invitation only): Partnership Grants in Stage 2 are valued at up to $500,000 per year over four to seven years, up to a total of $2,500,000.
