SSHRC to Launch Research/Creation in Fine Arts

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) will soon launch a Research/Creation in Fine Arts competition. The competition deadline will be November 5, 2010. The application form and revised program description will be available through the SSHRC website in September 2010. Funds will be released in March 2011.

The program invites artist-researchers affiliated with Canadian postsecondary institutions, within a broad range of disciplines, to apply for research grants of up to three years’ duration to support research/creation. The value of these grants is up to a maximum of $100,000 per year, but totaling not more than $250,000 in a three-year period. SSHRC welcomes both small- and large-scale projects.

Applications may be submitted by an individual artist-researcher, a team of artist-researchers, or a mixed team of artist-researchers, researchers in other academic fields, and professional artists. Professional artists may participate, but only as research collaborators or consultants.
