Research grants 2020
The HREC Research Grants Competition is held annually to support academic research on the Holodomor, the publication of research results, the preservation of materials, and the organization of and participation in academic venues. Each year, a new thematic focus is established, though proposals for other topics are considered. The applications are reviewed by a committee of scholars and HREC associates.
2020 HREC Research Grants Competition
HREC awarded a total of $39,000 CAD for 14 grants, ranging from $1,300 to $5,000, through its 2020 Research Grants Competition. Projects supported in this year’s competition were aimed at research that expands our knowledge and understanding of the Holodomor; publication and translation of research results; preservation of materials; and organization of and participation in academic forums. The grants competition announcement gave as examples research on the policies of foreign governments during collectivization and the Holodomor; the fate of various groups living in Ukraine (ethnic, social, etc.) ; diaspora communities and their kin in Soviet Ukraine; and the Holodomor at the national and sub-national levels (eg., oblasts, raions, villages). HREC also accepted proposals for larger collaborative projects that engage scholars and institutions from both in and outside Ukraine.
