Through our Funding and Support Program we are looking to attract and invest in multi-stakeholder teams working on socially transformative projects.
We’re looking for projects that:
Tackle a significant community identified issue related to inequity, injustice and unsustainability
Make a tangible impact on the system they are seeking to transform
Connect to Concordia through teaching, learning, research or student life
Results to date
SHIFT is proud to support 7 multi-stakeholder teams whose projects were selected in the first round of our Funding and Support Program. Read more about these transformative efforts, as well as the 15 additional projects that were funded through our Transformative Responses to COVID-19 program, to better understand the type of work SHIFT is aiming to support.
The SHIFT Funding and Support Program is designed to support multi-stakeholder teams.
Teams may be pre-existing groups of people or may be formed specifically to work on a SHIFT-funded project.
A team must consist of individuals representing two or more stakeholder groups with at least one member based at Concordia and another external to the Concordia ecosystem.
As an exception, and to increase accessibility, the IDEAS stream is open to any individual, organization, or informal group who is working to contribute to social transformation within the greater Montreal area.
Contributing to community learning
Recipients of SHIFT funding play a key role in nourishing our collective learning about social transformation. Through workshops, skill shares and collaborative evaluation processes, recipients of SHIFT funding are asked to share their expertise and experience with the SHIFT community.
