SSHRC Insight Grant forms and instructions now online

Wed. Aug. 2, 2017

This notice is to inform you that the SSHRC Insight Grant applications are now available on the SSHRC website at:  SSHRC has made changes to the program, namely introducing two competition streams based on the amount you are requesting.  We suggest you review all of the instructions and information before you begin preparing your application. 

As you begin to prepare your SSHRC IG application there are a number of resources on the SSHRC website and internally at UWinnipeg that we encourage you to take advantage of. 

Internally there are a number of successful SSHRC holders who are willing to review your application, sit down and talk to you about the application process, provide tips for preparing the application, etc.  If you are interested in being connected to someone inside – or outside – your department please let Jennifer Cleary know and she will help facilitate this.  Laura Sokal is our SSHRC Leader on campus and she is here to help you as well. 

Externally, SSHRC has some great resources that we encourage you to read before you start writing your application.  They are all found under the Guidelines and Related Support Material section at the bottom of the Insight Grant information page.  Here you will find guidelines for knowledge mobilization, research training, merit review of Indigenous research, along with others. 

The internal deadline for the full proposal will be Monday, September 25th.  If you would like a more comprehensive internal review by a colleague we encourage you to have the application ready by Monday, September 18th If you are interested in being matched with an internal reviewer please let Jennifer Cleary know by early September.
