Documentaries can be a compelling, engaging way to mobilize knowledge and reach a wide audience. If you ever thought a documentary film could be an excellent way to showcase your research results, a SSHRC Connection Grant may be the place to start.
Connection Grants are valued at between $7,000 and $25,000 for events, and up to $50,000 for other outreach activities. The short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization events and activities they support represent opportunities for participants to exchange knowledge and engage on important research issues. Events and activities funded by a Connection Grant often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive, longer-term projects that may potentially be eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities.
