Partnership Engage Grants—Residential Schools Joint Initiative
As part of the response to the TRC’s Calls to Action 71-76, SSHRC is partnering with the NCTR to propose a unique opportunity for short-term funding to support Indigenous community-led research and related activities involving community decision-making processes, research and actions regarding residential school sites in Canada.
This NCTR-SSHRC initiative is taking the form of a one-time funding opportunity, the Partnership Engage Grants—Residential Schools Joint Initiative (PEG RSJI). The PEG RSJI will support projects responding to a community’s need for planning, discussions, archival work or storytelling prior to, or in addition to, excavations or identifications on residential school sites in Canada. Projects can also focus on ground exploration, identification of sites and remains, repatriation of missing children from residential schools in Canada, or mapping and preservation of these sites, as judged appropriate by the community.
SSHRC is committed to invest up to $1M over the June 2022 PEG competition to support residential schools related projects. Grants are valued at a maximum amount of $50K per project for a duration of one year.
PEG RSJI applications are subject to the general Partnership Engage Grants’ eligibility requirements.
Researchers can submit only one application to either Partnership Engage Grants or the PEG RSJI in the same competition (e.g., June 2022).
However, the following exceptions apply:
- researchers who have already submitted a Partnership Engage Grants application in the current calendar year are still eligible to apply for a PEG RSJI grant; and
- researchers can hold one Partnership Engage Grant (but not for the June 2022 competition), multiple Partnership Engage Grant COVID-19 Special Initiative awards and a PEG RSJI simultaneously.
Further details, including application information, are available on SSHRC’s website
*Signature sheet due to ORS and Application in "Submit Mode" no later than 3 business days in advance of deadline.
