Sport Participation Research Initiative Research Grants

Sport Canada considers for funding applications that propose programs of research relevant to its policy priorities and that SSHRC adjudication committees have recommended for funding, but that, due to budgetary constraints, do not receive an Insight Grant. The partners seek to stimulate short- and long-term research in sport participation in Canada by increasing the funding available through the Insight Grants funding opportunity.

Note that the initiative is designed to complement, not replace, existing SSHRC support for sport participation research offered through the Insight program.
