The GRI Funding Opportunities 2023
The Gorsebrook Research Institute (GRI) for Atlantic Canada Studies at Saint Mary’s University (SMU) is the regional hub for research and collaborative scholarship on Atlantic Canada. Our Atlantic Canada recognizes First Nation communities and their land sovereignty, the ethnic and cultural diversity of those who were settled as part of forced immigration and colonization, and those who are here by their own choice and agency. The GRI’s mandate is to provide an interdisciplinary research environment that facilitates exchanges and partnerships among researchers at SMU and affiliates from many different fields who can come together to improve understandings of Atlantic Canada. It does so by providing research funding for faculty members of or affiliated with SMU and for community-based projects.
Conference Support Grant ($1,000)
For SMU faculty or researchers affiliated with SMU faculty to: 1) invite a guest speaker working on areas of research connected to Atlantic Canada; 2) support a researcher with an affiliation to SMU for expenses linked to technical support or services of an interpreter for an online event.
Research Grant ($2,000)
For SMU faculty or researchers working in partnership with SMU faculty who produce new knowledge that focuses on Atlantic Canada. The grant can be used for travel, accommodation and other research related expenses.
Community Initiative Grant ($3,000)

Partnerships Grant ($3,000)
