Subject: Funding Opportunity: Aboriginal Research Pilot Program, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) is relaunching its Aboriginal Research Pilot Program and invites eligible researchers to apply before the upcoming deadline on 30 September 2009.
The Aboriginal Research Pilot Program
The program facilitates research by and with aboriginal scholars and aboriginal communities on issues and topics relevant to Canada's Aboriginal Peoples, such as, but not limited to, urban issues, economic development, the environment, education, research ethics, intellectual and cultural property, traditional aboriginal knowledge, aboriginal knowledge systems, languages and cultures, and international aboriginal communities.
The program also aims to build the humanities and social sciences community's capacity to operate within, and benefit from, traditional aboriginal and other knowledge approaches to these sorts of issues and topics.
Aboriginal Research Pilot Program Grants
Research Development Grants are worth up to $25,000 over a maximum of two years; Research Grants are worth up to $100,000 annually, for a maximum of $250,000 over three years.
Aboriginal research funded through this program builds on traditions of thought and experience developed among, and in partnership with, First Nation, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada, as well as indigenous peoples in other parts of the world. The program is open to applicants affiliated with a Canadian postsecondary institution, or a not-for-profit aboriginal or community organization holding institutional eligibility. For more information on institutional eligibility, please see the program description (belwo). All applications must include both university- or college-based scholars and participants from aboriginal communities.
Each member of the research team must meet SSHRC's requirements for his or her particular role, whether as applicant (principal investigator), co-applicant (co-investigator), collaborator, student assistant, or other assistant or support staff.
