The application form for SSHRC Insight Grants is now available.

Stream A: $7,000 to $100,000 (over 2-5 years)
Stream B: $100,001 to $400,000 (over 2-5 years)

Deadline Dates:
Peer Review: August 28 – first draft to your Faculty Research Office (for peer review – if you meet this deadline you will receive a peer review of your application – send to Karen Kueneman)
Faculty Research Office: September 11 – draft to Faculty Research Office (for additional review by Research Officer)
Western Research: September 18, 2 PM ET – ROLA Proposal + submit your application through the SSHRC web-based form. Clicking submit will send the application to Western for review, not to SSHRC.
SSHRC: *10 am* October 3 – SSHRC deadline for submission of applications (results announced April 2024). When you submit your application through the SSHRC web-based form, it will be routed through Western for a final review and forwarded to SSHRC before the sponsor deadline.

Description: Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities. Funding is available to both emerging and established scholars for long-term research initiatives which may be undertaken by an individual or a team of researchers working in collaboration.

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

Funding Streams: 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 will be higher than that of Stream B.

PILOT Interdisciplinary Review extended: Insight Grant applicants whose research spans the mandate of more than one federal research funding agency (SSHRC, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research) can select a pilot Tri-Agency Interdisciplinary Peer Review Committee (TAIPR) for the 2023-24 Insight Grants competition. This pilot committee will use a harmonized tri-agency peer review process and evaluation criteria which differ from the usual process used by this funding opportunity.

ROLA  must be completed for your application to be forwarded to SSHRC.
