This seminar presents the main funding programs for research and artistic creation available to graduate students in the academic and cultural milieu in Quebec and Canada.

This workshop includes four modules (4 x 20 min), based on concrete examples and case studies. It aims to:

  • 1. Provide an overview of research grants and awards available to graduate students doing research-creation (SSHRC, FRQSC), as well as funding programs at the three levels of government (CAM, CALQ, CAC);
  • 2. Provide knowledge of the fundamental differences between the types of programs (research and creation/production/dissemination), their objectives and eligibility criteria (target clientele) and to situate one’s research and artistic creation in the various programs;
  • 3. Point out some considerations and tips for preparing and writing proposals and applications;
  • 4. Review examples of financial arrangements for award-winning research and creation projects.

There will be a Q&A period at the end of the session and a kit containing a list of programs, links to institutional resources and useful information will be distributed to participants.

This seminar will be presented by Manuelle Freire, coordinator of the Hexagram Network and Associate Professor at UQAM.
