More information about SSHRC Insight Grants has been released on the SSHRC Website: http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/programs-programmes/insight_grants-subventions_savoir-eng.aspx . The application form is not yet available.
Value and Duration: The maximum value of an Insight Grant is $500,000, over three to five years.
Deadline: October 15, 2011 (Faculty of Education and Research Development and Services deadlines will be earlier)
Multiple Applications: Researchers may not apply, as applicant, for an Insight Grant and an Insight Development Grant within the same calendar year. For instance, a researcher who applied for an Insight Development Grant in February 2011 may not apply for an Insight Grant in October 2011, whether successful in the competition or not. However, a researcher who applies for an Insight Grant in October 2011 may apply for an Insight Development Grant in February 2012, provided that the objectives of the research are different.
