The Insight Development Grants (IDG) application form is now available in SSHRC’s Research Portal. The application deadline is February 3, 2017 and the results will be available to institutions by June 2017.  

The internal deadline is January 16, 2017

New this year and of particular interest to IDG applicants:

  • Improved Canadian Common CV (CCV) sections, subsections and fields (see list of changes in the SSHRC CCV instructions).
  • Revised Terms and Conditions of Applying for Applicants and Co-Applicants.
  • New joint initiative with the Department of National Defense.
  • Updated instructions for Aboriginal Research.
  • Revised instructions for Funds Requested from SSHRC Module.

The adjudication committee structure will include disciplinary committees when justified by the number of applications.

Detailed information is available to applicants preparing an IDG research-creation application.

Note that Shared Services Canada (SSC), the hosting provider for CCV, is planning a major system upgrade on Saturday, November 19, beginning at 8 am ET. This upgrade is expected to end late in the evening. Consequently, the CCV application will not be available during this time.
