Description: Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities. Funding is available to both emerging and established scholars for long-term research initiatives. Applicants are invited to review the six future challenge areas and subquestions, and to consider addressing one or more of these areas in their research proposal. However, this will not be an evaluation criterion for merit review.
Eligibility: Applicants must hold an eligible academic research appointment at Western.
ROLA must be completed at the time of the full application.
