Funding for Indigenous Scholarly Events and Outreach Activities

Value: Successful applicants can normally expect funding in the range of $500-$1,500 depending on the level of demand across the University and the scope of the activity.  
Duration: 12 months
Deadline: Rolling deadlines. Please submit a completed application at least 6 weeks before the event is scheduled to take place.
 
Eligibility:
Preference will be given to applicants who identify as Indigenous/Aboriginal although all fulltime faculty members of York University are eligible to apply for this funding. Faculty members with CLA or other appointments are welcome to apply in collaboration with a fulltime tenure-stream faculty member. Graduate student activities will be considered so long as there is a full-time faculty member applicant, and the event or activity involves both faculty.
 
Objective: The Office of the VPRI offers funding to support scholarly events or outreach activities that address Indigenous priorities and needs, strengthen York’s Indigenous research culture and build the profile and reputation of sound Indigenous-focused research at York University.  Priority will be given to proposals from Indigenous applicants.
