Description: SSHRC Explore Grants support social sciences and humanities researchers with modest research funding requirements at any stage of career. They allow for small-scale innovation and experimentation by providing funding to develop a research project or conduct pilot work and enable researchers to hire students at any level to participate in their research projects, thereby contributing to their professional development.

Eligibility: Applicants  must hold an eligible academic research appointment at Western.

More Information and link to Applications: Applications are to be  accompanied by a completed ROLA.

NOTE: Researchers can only submit one application for the Explore Grant competition and one application for the Exchange Grant competition. Eligible researchers may apply for both grants; however only one grant can be awarded per researcher (i.e., a researcher cannot be awarded both an Explore Grant and an Exchange Grant). If a researcher decides to apply for both grants, the review committee reserves the right to decide which grant (if any) will be awarded to that researcher.
