The SSHRC has announced its Insight Development Grant competition. This grant is for researchers within six years of receiving their PhD or for established researchers planning on doing work in an area in which they have little or no track record. Total funding is $75,000 over one or two years. 50% of the funding is set aside for “Emerging Scholars” and new researchers should apply to this competition, not the fall Insight Grant competition.
- The SSHRC deadline is February 3rd
- Western’s institutional final deadline with ROLA approved – January 27th.
- Please send application drafts to Justin Patton for review no later than Wednesday, January 18th.
From Justin Patton, Research Officer: I would suggest that all those planning to apply meet with me at some point before December 14th to discuss application strategy – before putting pen to paper. I can give you application tips and we can discuss your methods and anticipated outcomes. 75% of the applications I have reviewed in each of the last two years were successful. The national success rate was 23% in 2015 and 40% in 2016. Hopefully, together we can find you success. It is a good year to apply because the programme was comparatively undersubscribed last year and it is my hope that there will be more funding to go around again this year.
