NCTR, SSHRC partner to launch $6M in funding for Indigenous-led research

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) have partnered to launch a new funding opportunity to meet the Truth and Reconciliation Commision’s Call to Action 65. SSHRC will invest up to $6M into Indigenous-led research. Teams will receive a maximum of $1M over five years from the Reconciliation Network to support them as they participate in NCTR-managed coordination activities. “This investment is an important milestone in implementing the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” said University of Manitoba VP (research and international) Mario Pinto. “By investing in Indigenous researchers who teach at universities, these funds also support the ability of students to play an active role in advancing Truth and Reconciliation.” Nation Talk| UManitoba| Newswire Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
