Partnership Engage Grant

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on March 28, 2022 in Research Funding

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) are partnering to offer a unique opportunity to support Indigenous communities in their decision-making processes, research, and actions regarding residential schools sites in Canada.

This NCTR-SSHRC joint initiative is taking the form of a one-time Partnership Engage Grant on residential schools; the PEG RSJI follows PEG regular eligibility criteria and aims to support projects presented by a researcher and responding to a community’s need for either 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 pertain to the 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.
