SSHRC has launched a Knowledge Synthesis Grants funding opportunity, to which the social sciences and humanities can contribute insights focusing on the future challenge area addressed in the question: How will Canada continue to thrive in an interconnected world and evolving global landscape?.
Knowledge Synthesis Grants are not intended to support original research. Rather, they are intended to support the synthesis of existing research knowledge and the identification of knowledge gaps. This call is particularly focused on the state of research knowledge emerging over the past 10 years. Proposals should address one or more of the specific key issues listed under the themes. However, applicants may choose to identify and/or develop specific aspects or elements within the questions to frame the knowledge synthesis to be produced.
- International relations and globalization
- Demographics and the movement of people
- Conflict, public safety, and global security
- Inequality, discrimination, and identity
A complete application will include:
- A half-page summary in lay terms
- A four-page proposal of the knowledge synthesis project, with a work plan and proposed methodology
- An itemized budget
- A knowledge mobilization plan (2 pages)
- The discipline codes that are applicable to the proposal (up to three);
- A list of each co-applicant and collaborator
- A separate page containing the signature of an authorized signatory from the applicant’s institution, certifying that the institution will administer any award in accordance with SSHRC policies (provided by RD&S);
- SSHRC Web CV for each applicant and co-applicant;
- A signed Consent to Disclosure of Personal Information for each applicant and co-applicant
January 9, 2017 Internal deadline for submissions to RDS with a ROLA
January 12, 2017 Final submission deadline
March , 2017 Results are announced

Research Development & Services, Information Session:
Introduction to SSHRC Insight Development Grants
and the Canadian Common CV (CCV)
Date: Monday, December 12th, 2016
Time: 2:30 – 4:00 pm
Res Research Development & Services will host an information session comprised of presentations and a Q&A period, on the 2017 SSHRC Insight Development (IDG) Competition, creating an application in the Research Portal, and the Canadian Common CV (CCV).
The session is designed as an introduction to Insight Development Grants, applicant/participant eligibility requirements and navigating the Canadian Common CV site, as well as an opportunity to note changes to the 2017 IDG competition.
All are welcome to attend.
The SSHRC has announced its Insight Development Grant competition. This grant is for researchers within six years of receiving their PhD or for established researchers planning on doing work in an area in which they have little or no track record. Total funding is $75,000 over one or two years. 50% of the funding is set aside for “Emerging Scholars” and new researchers should apply to this competition, not the fall Insight Grant competition.
- The SSHRC deadline is February 3rd
- Western’s institutional final deadline with ROLA approved – January 27th.
- Please send application drafts to Justin Patton for review no later than Wednesday, January 18th.
From Justin Patton, Research Officer: I would suggest that all those planning to apply meet with me at some point before December 14th to discuss application strategy – before putting pen to paper. I can give you application tips and we can discuss your methods and anticipated outcomes. 75% of the applications I have reviewed in each of the last two years were successful. The national success rate was 23% in 2015 and 40% in 2016. Hopefully, together we can find you success. It is a good year to apply because the programme was comparatively undersubscribed last year and it is my hope that there will be more funding to go around again this year.

The C. Kingsley Allison Research Grant/Award offered annually by the Developmental Disabilities Program in the Department of Psychiatry at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry is open to any student (undergraduate or graduate), faculty member or employee of the Western University community. Applications from all departments of the University will be accepted, without preference to any department, school or faculty.
Applications are also invited from non-Western University persons working with agencies in the London region providing services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. In this case, a member of the Western University faculty must be listed as a co-investigator.
The deadline for application is October 30, 2016.
The value of the award may range up to $9000 (with the actual value of each being determined by the number of funded proposals and the quality of each proposal).
This grant is not limited in scope, rather it is for any and all research projects which are of relevance to the understanding of the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of ID/DD.
