Community Partnership Grants

Fall 2021

The Saskatchewan First Nations and Métis Health and Wellness Research, Training and Knowledge Mobilization Network (FMHRN) has established Community Partnership Grants—seed funding meant to support researchers and community stakeholders, to develop grant applications to the Tri-Councils and other major research funders, on Indigenous health research. These are planning and development funds, intended to support research proposal development, not funding to undertake research projects.

Our 2021 call for proposals is now open. We are inviting applications from researchers and community members in Saskatchewan, other than those who currently hold Community Partnership Grants from our previous two calls in 2020. To see who was funded in our previous calls, please see below.

Timelines:

  • Call for Proposals launched: Wednesday, September 1, 2021
  • Application Deadline: Monday, December 6, 2021, at 9 am CST (deadline extended from original announcement)
  • Anticipated Notice of Decision: Monday, December 20, 2021 by 4 pm CST

Funding available: There is funding available for up to six grants of up to $10,000 each. In order that we are able to fund as many grants as possible, please consider carefully the amount you are requesting. The Review Committee may also reduce the amount awarded for each Community Partnership Grant in order to fund more applications. Please do not apply unless you plan to submit a grant application to a major funder by November 30, 2022.


Fall 2020

Based on the success of our first call for proposals for Community Partnership Grants, launched in March 2020, we invited applications for a second round of funding in this first year of our Network, with a submission deadline of November 30, 2020. This call was open to anyone in Saskatchewan, other than those who were funded in our March call for proposals.

FMHRN awarded four Community Partnership Grants totalling $ $35,313 to researchers from the University of Saskatchewan, First Nations University of Canada, and University of Regina.

Spring 2020

Shortly following its official launch in early April, the Saskatchewan First Nations and Métis Health and Wellness Research, Training and Knowledge Mobilization Network (FMHRN) launched its first call for proposals for Community Partnership Grants—seed funding meant to support researchers and community stakeholders, to develop grant applications to the Tri-Councils and other major research funders, on Indigenous health research. In recognition of the support we received in submitting this successful grant, we invited applications only from members of our NEIHR grant team (principal applicants, co-applicants, principal knowledge users, knowledge users, and collaborators).

FMHRN awarded nine Community Partnership Grants totalling $58,808, to researchers from the University of Saskatchewan, First Nations University of Canada, University of Regina, and two community-based organizations.
