SSHRC Insight Development Grant - internal workshop and SSHRC webinars

Tue. Dec. 5, 2017

The Research and Innovation Office will be holding a workshop for potential IDG applicants on Thursday, December 14th from 10:30 – 12:30 in Room 2M70.  For this workshop Laura Sokal and Jennifer Cleary will quickly present information related to the grant, and then we ask that attendees bring information on your application (i.e. methodology, student training plans and KMb plans) along with any questions about the application they have.  Past IDG recipients, along with Laura and Jennifer, will be there to provide advice/tips for preparing and strengthening applications.  This workshop is going to be led by applicant questions and interactions so please come with whatever materials you would like to discuss. 

The internal deadline for the IDG is Wednesday, January 10th.  If you would like a more comprehensive internal review by a colleague we encourage you to have the application ready approximately a week earlier.  If you are interested in being matched with an internal reviewer please let me know before we break for the holidays.
