Expression of Interest: Joint Research Proposal from Peru's Economic and Social Research Consortium

The Economic and Social Research Consortium in Peru seeks to strengthen international partnerships and consolidate emerging networks among academic researchers from Canada and Peru by supporting medium term collaborative research activities which will contribute to the creation, dissemination and sustained application of knowledge in areas of mutual interest related to development issues for both countries.

As an initial proposal, they are establishing research internship exchanges between academic researchers from Canada and Peru to benefit two outstanding and experienced Peruvian academic researchers in social sciences, winners of an especial category of the CIES’s XIX Annual Research Contest. They will spend a period of 15 days in an important Canadian university or research center in order to develop and produce, along with its Canadian counterparts, knowledge in areas of mutual interest, such as natural resources, energy, sustainable development, employment, education, gender, etc., to inform public policy, either in Peru or in Canada. The same idea will 
apply for Canadian researchers that would like to spend an internship period of 15 days with any of the 48 Peruvian institutional members related to their field of study. For more information, please see the draft proposal for this opportunity.

   

Alberta Culture and Tourism's Community Initiatives Program - Alberta Canada 150 Grant

On July 1, 2017, Canada will mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Canada 150 presents a unique opportunity for Albertans to join in the national celebration as Canadians recognize this national milestone and anticipate our future together. 
 
Culture and Tourism’s Community Initiatives Program (CIP) Alberta Canada 150 funding stream will provide up to $2 million to support projects that align with the four themes for the federal Canada 150 approach:
 
  • Diversity and inclusion, and the building of common interests and relationships;
  • Supporting efforts toward reconciliation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians;
  • Engaging and inspiring youth to carry forward the legacy of Canada 150; and
  • Connecting Canadians with nature and raising environmental stewardship to the level of national consciousness. 
The Alberta Canada 150 grant will allow non-profit organizations to apply for a maximum of $25,000 per project with a $150 cash match. The first intake to accept applications will be January 15, 2017, and the final intake will be October 15, 2017. The monthly application deadline will be the 15th of each month from January through October 2017. The Alberta Canada 150 grant is intended to support projects with a lasting impact. Although celebratory events will not be eligible for funding support through the Alberta Canada 150 stream, they may be eligible through CIP Project‑Based.
 
MRU faculty are invited to share information about this new Culture and Tourism grant program that will demonstrate Alberta’s support of the Canada 150 anniversary celebration in 2017.
