Workshop Award

Matching Funds for 2024 SSHRC Connection Grant Applications


Applications closed for 2024-25

Successful workshop proposals have been selected for 2024-25. Check back for future opportunities and more information on these winning proposals, to be announced if they are successful in the subsequent SSHRC competition.

CMS was pleased once again to offer competitive matching funds for SSHRC Connection Grant applications by CMS faculty affiliates based at UBC. Two $7,000 awards were available in 2024. Eligible projects will focus on migration and mobilities research, involve at least two CMS faculty affiliates, and feature a workshop event for which the CMS matching funds will be used. In addition to funding, successful applicants will receive limited in-kind supports from CMS (e.g., budget, event, and/or promotional support). 

 In order to be considered, Workshop Award applicants must first submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) via the form below. Final applications will subsequently be accepted via the website as well. Here are more details and information:
