The Notification of Intent (NOI) to apply for an Insight Grant is now mandatory. NOIs must be submitted directly by the applicants to SSHRC via the online system by August 15th, 2012. An applicant who has not submitted an NOI by this date will be ineligible to submit the full application in the October 2012 competition.
In addition to basic information, an applicant must submit a one-page Summary of the Proposed Research. This Summary must include:
• the objectives of the research
• the proposed methodology; and
• the anticipated significance and impacts of the proposed research.
The NOI form will be available on SSHRC’s website by mid-June.
