These one-year, internal grants have a value of up to $10,000 and their purpose is to help initiate, bridge, complete or reorient a faculty’s research program through support of a single defined project when other funding sources are not available.  All full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty members (Assistant, Associate, Full) are eligible to apply.   Funding is awarded through three separate competitions:

  • CU – SSHRC Explore Development Grant
  • CU – NSE Research Development Grant
  • CU – Health Research Development Grant

Please see the CORIS web site for full details.

3) SSHRC Insight Grant Info Session

Hello to our SSHRC researchers!

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. It is an open competition each October that receives proposal involving any disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for SSHRC funding.  These grants enable scholars to address complex issues pertaining to individuals and societies, and to further our collective understanding. Applications may be submitted by an individual researcher or a team of researchers (consisting of one applicant and one or more co-applicants and/or collaborators).

We encourage you to attend our SSHRC Insight Grant information session if you are thinking about applying in the Fall 2019 competition or to one in the future.  “Too early?”, you ask?  Not at all!

Please join us:

  • Wednesday, May 1, 2019
  • MacOdrum Library Discovery Centre Room 482
  • 1:30 – 3:30 pm

Your Faculty Research Facilitators will provide a brief introduction to the SSHRC Insight Grant program including covering any recent changes to the application process; discuss the evaluation criteria and adjudication process; and highlight some tips from our, and your colleagues’, experiences on what makes a competitive SSHRC Insight Grant application.

We look forward to seeing you there!
