SSHRC Insight Grants – Deadlines and Instructions
Sponsor:Social Science and Humanities Research Council
Stream A: $7,000 to $100,000
Stream B: $100,001 to $400,000 2 to 5 years
Description: 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 welcomes applications involving Indigenous research, as well as those involving research-creation.
