2021 SRCA Growth Grant Program
We are excited to announce the launch of the 2021 SRCA Growth Grant program. The Growth Grants are internal awards granted on a competitive basis for projects involving scholarship, research and creative activities. We are also launching the 2021 SSHRC Explore Grant competition, which follows the same application and review processes as SRCA Growth Grants.
Please note: due to the budget uncertainty resulting from the pandemic, we anticipate being able to support fewer projects than usual through the 2021 competition.
Please note there are a few new elements to the SRCA Growth Grant process this year:
- In the project description, we have introduced a section on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) considerations. Sheridan is committed to supporting an inclusive culture needed for research excellence. The inclusion of EDI criteria supports the creation of a more equitable, diverse and inclusive research ecosystem at Sheridan that fully engages Sheridan’s students, professors, staff and the communities we serve.
- We have also introduced a section in the project description to address if the project could be conducted and/or continued remotely if necessary due to pandemic conditions.
- Co-applicants must also sign and secure sign-off from their AD/manager for each application on which they are named.
The Sheridan Research Office will be offering an information session and additional drop-in time for those seeking guidance in preparing their proposals. Details will be announced in the near future.
Applications are due by January 11, 2021 at 5:00pm.
