SSHRC Explore (formerly SSHRC / Vice-President’s Research Grants Program)
Academic Unit: Inquire with Unit
Memorial Deadline: Thursday 7th, February 2019
Competition deadline February 7 and September 30 annually*
Program formerly known as ‘SSHRC / Vice-President’s Research Grants Program’
Awards provide a maximum of $7,000 towards research projects undertaken by faculty members in disciplines supported by SSHRC.
Requests from new faculty are encouraged. Requests from established faculty researchers for funding to initiate new avenues of research will also be considered. In so far as is possible, these grants will be used to initiate projects which will be ongoing beyond the period of the initial grant, through funding secured from external agencies.
Support is not available for: faculty member’s thesis work; university curriculum development; textbook preparation; dissemination (including conference travel); or normally for the purchase of capital equipment.
A faculty member may receive just one research grant in three academic years. Collaborative applications which include someone having received an individual grant in the last three years will not, however, be excluded from consideration on this basis.
*Please note that if the deadline date falls on a weekend, applications will be due on the first work day following the deadline.
