Western Strategic Support for SSHRC Success

Western Strategic Support for SSHRC Success

Research Development and Services is pleased announce the 2016 Western Strategic Support for SSHRC Success Suite of awards. There have been key changes to the program for this year, most notably the Bridge and Accelerator have been replaced by the Open research grant that does not have any current or prior SSHRC funding requirements.

Program  Overview:

Funded by the Office of the Vice-President (Research), the Western Strategic Support (WSS) for SSHRC Success program offers two funding opportunities identified as the Seed and Open grants. These grants are targeted at all researchers who are pursuing SSHRC-related research. The intent of these grants is to offer critical, one-time funding to support an individual investigator’s research activities for the subsequent development of strong, competitive submissions to external, peer-reviewed research sponsors.

  • The WSS-SSHRC Seed Research Grant is targeted to eligible early career researchers, who are within three years of the start date of their first eligible academic research appointment at Western (typically a probationary appointment) and who typically have little prior academic or non-academic independent research experience as a Principal Investigator. (Maximum value $25,000 for one year)
  • The WSS-SSHRC Open Research Grant is targeted to established researchers pursuing SSHRC-related research. (Maximum value $25,000 for one year)
