They support social sciences and humanities researchers with modest research funding requirements at any stage of career; 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.
