Canada-China Initiatives Fund Application | Virtual Events and Activities


YCAR invites applications from York University faculty and graduate students for the 2020 Canada-China Initiatives Fund call for proposals.

In recognition of the current global circumstances due to COVID-19, for the 22 January 2021 deadline, we are inviting applications for virtual events. This includes: virtual talks, workshop, seminars, conferences or related activities held between 1 February and 31 August 2021 to communicate with peers and/or wider publics and share knowledge with researchers elsewhere that are focused on themes within the scope noted above.

Virtual activities as listed above will be given priority in this round.

The number of funded applications will depend on submissions. Applications will be judged based on several criteria:

- Their potential to raise the global profile of research and engagement at York on China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan and its global reach, or Canada-China linkages, or the Chinese-Canadian community. Preference will be given to initiatives that explore how research on China can impact or impacts Canada.
- Their potential to foster connections between York and institutions in China or in the Chinese-Canadian community.
- Appropriate, realistic and noteworthy output(s) that contribute to the first three criteria
- Strong support and participation from at least one York faculty member (and preferably more than one, except in cases of graduate student funding).
- Achievable timeline
- Detailed and accurate budget. Expenses should be appropriate to the proposal. Applicants submitting application for research funding are required to show proposed or requested or confirmed cash or in-kind support from other sources for their application to be considered.
