Prof. Shelley Craig receives SSHRC Partnership Grant

 

Prof. Shelley L. Craig and the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto have been approved by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) for a 7-year, $2.5 million Partnership Grant. This partnership – called INQYR (International Partnership for Queer Youth Resilience) brings together over fifty academic and community partners from Canada, the United States, Latin America, and the United Kingdom.

The team will work to address the needs of gender and sexual minority youth and their use of information and communication technologies within diverse global contexts, while also training the next generation of scholars and practitioners working with LGBTQ+ youth.
