Lakehead University is pleased to announce a program in support of community-engaged research with community organizations, and not-for-profit partners. We invite all tenure-track and tenured Lakehead faculty members who are eligible to apply to the disciplines supported by SSHRC to submit applications to the 2021 Community-Engaged Research Grant (CERG) Program.
Community-engaged research is a collaborative process between universities and diverse communities. The goal of such research is to improve community well-being and to describe, through participatory knowledge creation and creative expression, how this is accomplished. Community-engaged research respects the capacity of all stakeholders to contribute to the development of new knowledge and incorporates them in the design, conduct and dissemination of the different phases of the research process. Community-engaged research is founded upon the principles of social responsibility, respect, reciprocity, democratization of knowledge creation, and social and/or ecological justice. This initiative will support funding for collaborative research initiatives that are aligned with Lakehead University’s commitment to Social Responsibility and Community Engagement with community partners as outlined in the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan.
Application packages are due December 6, 2021. For the complete program guidelines, please see attached or click here.
