Partnerships & Funding

The School of Cities seeks meaningful collaborations with partners, recognizing that communities and their members are key collaborators in knowledge-making projects.

The School provides funding/co-sponsorship opportunities through targeted grants and programs. We support a range of urban-focused research, education and outreach initiatives. 

The School embraces equity and diversity as a source of creativity and inspired scholarship. The School aims to reflect the diversity of people and communities of the local urban region and is especially committed to the active participation of underrepresented and equity seeking groups, especially Indigenous, Black, immigrant, and racialized people. 

For groups interested in partnering with the School of Cities on co-sponsored events, visit our outreach small grant funding page for requirements. The School also provides small grant funding for educational initiatives.
