Brock launches second round of Indigenous Research Grant

Brock’s Office of Research Services is now accepting applications for the second round of the University’s Indigenous Research Grant.

Launched last year, the grant provides up to $7,500 for two years for faculty to undertake research or creative activities in any discipline and on any topic that relates to Indigenous Peoples.

While preference will be given to research that is led by or involves partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples, proposals for research involving Indigenous Peoples globally are welcome.

Examples of areas include:

  • Social innovation related to Indigenous issues.
  • Knowledge-based practices in the development of Indigenous curriculum.
  • Understanding of health service utilization by Indigenous Peoples, specifically focused on health services for Brock’s Indigenous students.
  • Factors influencing recruitment and retention of Indigenous students.
  • Governance and leadership in Indigenous communities.
  • Knowledge-based practices for volunteerism with Indigenous Peoples.
  • Indigenous health practices and promotion.
  • Indigenous language revitalization.
  • Addressing violence against Indigenous Peoples.
  • Indigenous community-driven research agendas.

Grants will be adjudicated as they are received and while funding is available.

While applications will be accepted on a continuous intake basis, submissions must be received by Monday, April 18 to be considered for funding out of the 2021-22 envelope. Applications received after that date will be considered out of the 2022-23 funding envelope.

Please read the Program Guidelines and Application Instructions (login required) before applying. Note that applications must be signed by the applicant, their Department Chair and Associate Dean of Research. Only electronic applications will be accepted.
