Knowledge Synthesis Grants: Gender- Based Violence

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) are launching a Knowledge Synthesis Grants (KSG) funding opportunity to assess the state of research knowledge on the topic of gender-based violence under SSHRC’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative.

This call for proposals focuses on the state of knowledge on gender-based violence (GBV) in Canada such as the impact of GBV on different populations, the efficacy of services addressing and preventing GBV, or the needs of victims and survivors of GBV.  The KSGs on gender-based violence will support synthesizing existing knowledge and identifying knowledge gaps on this topic and stimulate knowledge mobilization. By reaching a variety of audiences, including decision-makers, this knowledge can, ultimately, contribute towards a Canada free of gender-based violence.


Eligibility: Applicants must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian institution. Postdoctoral researchers are eligible to be applicants if they have established a formal affiliation with an eligible institution at the time of application and maintain such an affiliation for the duration of the grant period.
