There are two scenarios in which a researcher may be eligible to seek Bridge support.
1. The researcher’s external SSHRC grant has ended within the past 2 years (not including the terminal year), and has unsuccessfully applied to an external SSHRC competition within one year of the competition deadline.
2.  The researcher has applied to SSHRC (as the PI) within the past year receiving a 4A status result and is ineligible for Seed funding. Applicants must disclose any reviewer feedback received in SSHRC’s referee report and are encouraged to have applications to any external SSHRC competition peer -reviewed before submission.

SSHRC’s Subject Matter Eligibility guidelines apply to this funding opportunity. The applicant must be eligible to hold a research grant at Western.
