Education researchers receive one million dollars in 2020 Tri-Council grants
Congratulations to Drs. Sean Blenkinsop and Maureen Hoskyn, recipients of the Social Sciences and Humanities Council (SSHRC) Insight Grants for 2020.
The grants, awarded to emerging and established scholars, provide valuable support for long-term research initiatives that address complex issues about individuals and societies.
Dr. Blenkinsop's grant (valued at $230,922) will be used to develop place and nature-based experiential education practices in public schools and teacher education, while Dr. Hoskyn's grant (valued at $287,994) aims to conduct a follow-up study into the development of executive functions in multilingual children.
In addition to the Insight Grants, five other principal investigators from the Faculty of Education received grants from various SSHRC and Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funding programs, totaling $1,079,988. This outstanding result is testament to the value and diversity of the faculty’s continued research efforts.
Congratulations to all of the principal investigators, co-investigators, collaborators and students who have been involved in this pioneering research!
