SHRC Impact Awards are designed to build on and sustain Canada’s research-based knowledge culture in all research areas of the social sciences and humanities. The awards recognize outstanding researchers and celebrate their research achievements, research training, knowledge mobilization, and outreach activities funded partially or entirely by SSHRC.

Award funds are to be used for activities that promote and further develop the work being honoured. In recognition of the crucial role that postsecondary institutions play as knowledge mobilization of partners researchers, at least 10 per cent of each award must be used to promote the recipient’s research achievements. Individual recipients and their institutions may choose to devote additional funds, including a higher percentage of the award funds, to these activities.

institutions eligible to administer SSHRC funding are invited to put forward nominations in the following categories:

Gold Medal ($100,000)
Talent Award ($50,000)
Insight Award ($50,000)
Connection Award ($50,000)
Partnership Award ($50,000)
