Emerging Projects Grants

Central to the mission of the QTRL, the Emerging Projects Fund provides $10,000 – $20,000 annually to University of Toronto faculty members and graduate students whose scholarly and community work attends to entrenched and emerging social and political problems affecting LQBTIQ2SA+ and BIPOC lives and communities in Toronto, Canada, and elsewhere around the world.

These awards are designed to support collaborative research projects in their initial stages, which could include sustaining community and/or international partnerships, preparing for other partnership grants such as SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR, Canadian Heritage Grants, etc., and cross-faculty collaborations. We welcome projects focused on, but not limited to, LGBTIQ2SA+ public health, Two-Spirit needs and experiences, schools and education, art and public museums, queer transnational research and scholarship, multi-institutional and multi-locational social justice initiatives, archiving and documenting LGBTQ2S+ and QTBIPOC histories, and queer cultural production.
