SSHRC Insight Grants – 2020 Competition
Academic Unit: Inquire with your unit
Memorial Deadline: Inquire with your unit
External Deadline: Thursday 1st, October 2020
Academic Units have assumed responsibility for institutional review and electronic submission of applications for the CIHR Project, CIHR Foundation, SSHRC Insight, SSHRC Insight Development, NSERC Discovery, and NSERC RTI Grants competitions. Research Grant and Contract Services will no longer be completing the electronic submission for these grants, but will be supporting Academic Units in their review of applications as they may require. If you are intending on applying to any of these competitions, please contact your Grants Facilitation Officer, Associate Dean (Research) or equivalent unit signatory to obtain information on internal deadlines and processes for institutional review and electronic submission for your unit.
Insight Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program.
Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities. Funding is available to both emerging and established scholars for research initiatives of two to five years.
Stable support for long-term research initiatives is central to advancing knowledge. It enables scholars to address complex issues about individuals and societies, and to further our collective understanding.
Insight Grants support research proposed by scholars and judged worthy of funding by their peers and/or other experts. Insight Grant research initiatives can be undertaken by an individual researcher or a team of researchers working in collaboration.
Applicants choose from one of two streams, depending on the amount of funding required. Both streams will be adjudicated by the same committees, and will receive the same rigorous level of merit review. The deadlines and application process are identical for both; however, the targeted success rate for Stream A is higher than for Stream B.
SSHRC will be holding webinars for applicants and research administrators to provide information and answer questions about the Insight Grants and the Insight Development Grants.
The webinars will be held via WebEx at the following times:
