These funds are primarily intended to provide travel and related support for faculty members to travel to other locations to meet with individuals, organizations, groups, municipalities, government officials, other researchers, and others, for the purpose of networking and collaborating. The meetings should be for the purpose of beginning a new potential working relationship, extending an existing working relationship, or working on proposal development and project planning activities.
Alternatively, the funds could be used to cover costs for representatives of the above-mentioned groups, or for individuals, to come to Sackville / Mount Allison University to meet.
In keeping with the broader purpose of the Aid to Small Universities grant awarded by SSHRC, the meeting / activity / event must clearly involve some type of discussion leading to the possibility for, or laying the foundation for, future community engagement or knowledge mobilization activities.
The maximum amount of funds available in a single award is $500. You may apply for a single amount in one application and spend it over several related meeting events, or apply separately for different meeting events. However, the total available is still $500. An individual faculty member may hold no more than two of these awards over the life of the Aid to Small Universities grant.
Deadline: Open deadline, you may submit your application anytime to:
