Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant

DESCRIPTION:  Glendon College has established the Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant to recognize the historic and contemporary effects of racism and racial disparities on the career and research paths of Indigenous and racialized colleagues.

The Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant was established to support innovative research projects from qualified eligible applicants: Indigenous and racialized researchers at Glendon regardless of research area who self-identify as an Indigenous person (First Nations, Inuit or Métis) or as a member of a visible minority (racialized) group. (see below, under Eligibility). 

SUBJECT MATTER:The Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant is intended to support an original research project from emerging and established Indigenous and racialized scholars at Glendon. Projects may be stand-alone or part of a broader research program. Colleagues who currently do not have external funds will be given priority. Outcomes may include, but are not limited to, publications, presentations, enhanced curriculum, new or expanded partnerships, and reports.

ELIGIBILITY: Applicants must self-identify as Indigenous or racialized persons in order to be considered eligible for Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant funding. Applicants who wish to update their self-identification information may do so by completing the employment equity self-identification survey found at https://hr1.apps01.yorku.ca/machform/view.php?id=1 (Login to York Passport required).

Applicants must have an eligible affiliation with Glendon, York University. The guidelines for eligible affiliation are:

  • Tenure-stream YUFA faculty members at Glendon may apply for an Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant, provided that the project for which they are seeking funding is not already funded by an active external or internal grant.  Start-up funds are not considered an internal grant for the purposes of this adjudication.
  • Applications from colleagues with Contractually Limited Appointments (CLAs) and Special Renewable Contracts (SRCs) will also be considered. Appointments for the grant period must have been confirmed by the application deadline.

APPLICATION DEADLINE:  Friday, April 15 at 4:00 PM.

VALUE AND DURATION: Applicants may request a maximum amount of $3,500 from Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research funds.  (One award will be granted in 2022.)

GUIDELINES: Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research funds are awarded for a maximum of 12 months, with unused funds returned to the Principal’s Office. If necessary, grant recipients may submit an extension request of 6 months to the Associate Principal, Research & Graduate Studies (APRGS). Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research funds cannot be used to buy-out teaching or otherwise cover applicants’ salary. Only direct project costs (e.g. hiring student Research Assistants) are eligible for funding. Unless otherwise approved by the APRGS, applicants may not use Indigenous and Racialized Scholar Research Grant Program funds to hire consultant firms where there is, or may be perceived to be, a conflict of interest as defined by the University. Please refer to the York University Conflict of Interest Policies for Faculty Members and Librarians and employees, as appropriate.

Community Engagement Research Grant

York University serves and engages our community to enhance economicsocial, and cultural well-being. York strives to be a recognized and leading community-engaged university. York values the diversity of knowledge and expertise within communities and among its many cross-sectoral partners. As an engaged university, York is committed to fostering and sustaining community-university collaborations for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources that address pertinent societal issues, build community capacity, enhance learning and discovery, strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility, and prepare educated, engaged citizens.

Please check out York’s Community Engagement web page to discover the many ways York University engages and serves the community. http://community.info.yorku.ca/

The Community Engagement Research Grant, administered through Glendon’s Research Office, aims to provide seed-funding opportunities to encourage faculty members’ research connections with the non-university community at local, national or international levels.  It recognizes the importance of establishing links with non-university partners for significant types of research.

The Community Engagement Research Grant supports partnerships that align with the goals of York University Engagement strategy and its contribution to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The review process will prioritize proposals involving collaborative projects with partners working towards mutual benefits. Early-career colleagues will receive priority in the decision-making process.  For the purposes of this grant, community partners include community-based organization, agencies and groups. This may include NGOs, non-university charitable organizations, etc.  These funds are intended to mobilize academic support in support of the work of community-based organizations, agencies and groups.   

“Community-based organizations, agencies or groups” refers to organizations aimed at making improvements to a community’s social health, well-being, and overall functioning. Community organization occurs in geographically, psychosocially, culturally, spiritually, and digitally bounded communities.

Community organization, agencies or groups include community work, community projects, community development, community empowerment, community building, and community mobilization. It is a commonly used model for organizing community within community projects, neighborhoods, organizations, voluntary associations, localities, and social networks, which may operate as ways to mobilize around geography, shared space, shared experience, interest, need, and/or concern.

Applications must be developed as a community partnership and must include:

  • At least one community partner at the local, national or international level
  • A faculty member affiliated to Glendon.
    • Permanent tenure-stream YUFA faculty members at Glendon may apply for a Community Engagement Research Grant, provided that the project for which they are seeking funding is not already funded by an active external or internal grant.
    • Applications from colleagues holding Contractually Limited Appointments (CLAs) and Special Renewal Contracts (SRCs) will also be considered. Appointments for the entirety of the grant period must be confirmed by the application deadline.
    • Colleagues are not permitted to be applicants or co-applicants on more than one Community Engagement Research Grant application in the same competition.

This fund is in support of:

  • A community partnership between Glendon faculty and eligible non-university organizations

Priority will be given to partnerships in the early stages of development (i.e., start-up projects and new projects).

Applicants are asked to submit proposals that include specific mention on how the proposed idea aligns with the university’s community engagement strategy vision, goals and objectives.
