Partnership Grants - Stage 1

Partnership Grants (PG) provide support for new and existing formal partnerships over 4 to 7 years to advance research, research training and/or knowledge mobilization in the social sciences and humanities through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, as well as through resources as evidenced by cash and/or in-kind contributions.
Funding for Stage 1: up to $20,000, used to prepare the Stage 2 formal application.
Eligibility: Applications must be submitted by an eligible Canadian institution. The project director prepares the application on behalf of his/her host institution (the applicant), and on behalf of the formal partnership.
Internal process: As this program is of strategic importance for SFU, Institutional Strategic Awards (ISA) is working with Faculty Research Facilitators to line up pre-award support. Please see the ISA website at for details and resources, and to register for the info session and Q&A panel. 

Internal timeline:
  • January 11, 2021: draft application components to ISA for internal review
  • January 20, 2021: requests for institutional support letters due (for both SFU-led and non-SFU-led projects)
  • February 5, 2021: final application due to ORS with SFU Signature Sheet
