SSHRC Knowledge Synthesis Grants

SSHRC has launched a Knowledge Synthesis Grants funding opportunity, to which the social sciences and humanities can contribute insights focusing on the future challenge area addressed in the question: How will Canada continue to thrive in an interconnected world and evolving global landscape?.

Knowledge Synthesis Grants are not intended to support original research. Rather, they are intended to support the synthesis of existing research knowledge and the identification of knowledge gaps. This call is particularly focused on the state of research knowledge emerging over the past 10 years. Proposals should address one or more of the specific key issues listed under the themes. However, applicants may choose to identify and/or develop specific aspects or elements within the questions to frame the knowledge synthesis to be produced.

  1. International relations and globalization
  2. Demographics and the movement of people
  3. Conflict, public safety, and global security
  4. Inequality, discrimination, and identity

Application Process

A complete application will include:

  1. A half-page summary in lay terms
  2. A four-page proposal of the knowledge synthesis project, with a work plan and proposed methodology
  3. An itemized budget
  4. A knowledge mobilization plan (2 pages)
  5. The discipline codes that are applicable to the proposal (up to three);
  6. A list of each co-applicant and collaborator
  7. A separate page containing the signature of an authorized signatory from the applicant’s institution, certifying that the institution will administer any award in accordance with SSHRC policies (provided by RD&S);
  8. SSHRC Web CV for each applicant and co-applicant;
  9. A signed Consent to Disclosure of Personal Information for each applicant and co-applicant
