Urban Challenge Grant

Call for Proposal: SofC's Urban Challenge GrantsThe Urban Challenge Grant program at the School of Cities builds multidisciplinary scholarly communities of practice within the University of Toronto around complex urban challenges in order to advance knowledge. By supporting this research, we will uncover new understandings and strategies to help communities in Canada and around the world thrive. 

Urban Challenge Grants fund timely research, knowledge dissemination and community engagement to address emerging research questions. They also provide seed funding for pilot studies that could ultimately lead to transformative or high-impact research.

The School of Cities’ focus in 2022-2023 is on Migration, Belonging and Thriving, and we seek to fund research from different disciplines that crosscut the areas of migration, belonging, and thriving or that tackle the interactions between these areas. We invite proposals for grants of up to $75,000 from University of Toronto faculty and postdoctoral fellows from the humanities, social and natural sciences, and engineering. Proposals are due January 16, 2023, with decisions to be made by late March, 2023.
