|Re:||Call for Proposals – University of Toronto Community Partnership Research Program (PDAD&C #113)|
I am pleased to invite applications for a pilot program to support Community Partnership Research, jointly funded by the University of Toronto and the Connaught Fund. This initiative is intended to help create new collaborative research partnerships, or nurture early stage partnerships, between the University and community partners. By fostering access to each other’s unique knowledge, expertise, and capabilities on issues of shared interest, established relationships may evolve over time that will attract external funding through, for example, the SSHRC Partnerships Grant Program.
Value and Duration
Partnership Projects can request up to $50,000 per year for one to three years.
Through this competition, up to four partnership initiatives will be supported. This is a one-time funding initiative, to be revisited based on the success of the initial project.
Eligibility and Program Guidelines
The lead proponent of each initiative will be a full-time (tenured or tenure-stream) faculty member at the University of Toronto. Proposed initiatives must include an organizing team with representatives of a lead community partner, including a co-leader for the initiative.
The application deadline is Wednesday, October 31, with results announced in early 2019. Program guidelines and application instructions are available online.
