The Indigenous Knowledge Institute (IKI) invites proposals for the Community Engagement Grants to support academics with a new research idea to test, explore, and develop it in partnership with members of Indigenous communities.
The Community Engagement Grants will be awarded to researchers/research teams who are building equitable partnerships with Indigenous communities at a grassroots level.
The funding will enable the researcher to develop interdisciplinary and community-engaged networks within and external to the University. The scheme aims to support research ideas that may lead to a proposal for future rounds of the IKI’s Seed Funding program.
