2015 - The ASPP Today
Today, the Awards to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP) remains one of the cornerstones of the Federation's activities. Every year, the program gives out 180 publication grants to Canadian authors and publishers in order to support the dissemination of research across the country. The five translation grants that are also awarded help ensure that research is available in both of Canada's official languages. And while the program has greatly expanded in size and scope since the initial Publications Committees of the Canadian Social Science Research Council and the Humanities Research Council of Canada in 1940s, its continued existence provides a tangible link between those councils and today's Federation, and the ongoing commitment to encouraging Canadian scholarship.
