Call for proposals for collaborative interdisciplinary research projects

July 31, 2015 — 

The Centre for Human Rights Research invites proposals from University of Manitoba faculty members who want to explore new collaborative interdisciplinary research projects. Priority will be given to pre-tenure faculty and to research projects that fit in one of our four focus areas:

• Indian residential schools & truth and reconciliation
• sexual and reproductive rights
• human right to water
• documenting human rights

See a list of previous recipients.

The Centre for Human Rights Research may be able to help you get a research project off the ground by connecting you to other researchers and community groups, providing organizational or administrative assistance, and offering startup financial support.

Note that this program focuses on new research projects. It is not intended to support bringing in speakers, dissemination of research (such as publication support or conference travel) or academic programming.

The Centre for Human Rights Research anticipates small grants of $500-3,000, although compelling and promising proposals could receive a larger amount.

Deadline: Applications will be responded to on a rolling basis until Oct. 1, 2015.

How to apply: Send a 1-2 page proposal to CHRR director Prof. Karen Busby. See details at

Research at the University of Manitoba is partially supported by funding from the Government of Canada Research Support Fund.
