Partnership Engage Grant COVID-19 Special Initiative

Through Partnership Engage Grants (PEG), the PEG COVID-19 Special Initiative provides short-term and timely support for small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships. It will allow researchers and their partners to address urgent and specific needs, challenges or opportunities through collaborations. It will also provide a unique opportunity to foster a knowledge exchange on COVID-19 crisis related issues, challenges and impacts between postsecondary researchers and different sectors of society, including graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and other highly qualified personnel.

Eligibility:

PEG COVID-19 Special Initiative applications are subject to the general PEG eligibility requirements.

Due to the exceptional circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the following exceptions apply:

  • organizations or associations that provide services to postsecondary institutions may be involved as a partner;
  • researchers who have already submitted a PEG application in the current calendar year are eligible to apply for a PEG COVID-19 grant; and
  • researchers can hold one PEG grant and multiple PEG COVID-19 grants simultaneously.

Researchers may only submit one application to either PEG or the PEG COVID-19 Special Initiative in the same competition (e.g., June 2020).

Key Deadlines:

Submitted as a PEG, there are 2 application intakes for this specialized initiative (Jun 15, and Sept 15).  The grants are valued at $7K to $25K over one year.   

Application Process:

Applicants must complete the PEG application form, and follow the accompanying instructions, as outlined in the PEG funding opportunity description.

In their application form, applicants must:

  • Insert the prefix “COVID-19” in the application title;
