SSHRC announces new research funds for Race, Gender and Diversity Initiative

Updated: Aug 11, 2021

We are pleased to share that the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) launched an initiative to support more community-led research projects. This initiative is on the themes of race, gender and diversity and will aim to provide financial support for partnership research to inform actions that address social disparities related to race, gender, and other forms of diversity. Researchers from not-for-profit organizations, in partnership with postsecondary institutions, can submit applications for projects that are community-led and community based, and which are based on the lived experience of underrepresented and disadvantaged groups, including but not limited to women; First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples; people living with disabilities; racialized communities; religious minorities; and LGBTQ2+ people, as well as individuals who identify as, or belong to, more than one of these groups.
