Preparing a SSHRC Insight Development Grant application

Hosted by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, this information session is designed for faculty interested in applying for a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Development Grant.

The session will consist of SSHRC specific grant writing tips for the IDG 2018 competition (due early February 2018); an overview of the grant components; insight into the adjudication process; advice on how to negotiate the application process, and to respond to any particular questions that might arise.

The session will also provide attendees with the opportunity to interact with TRU faculty who have successfully held IDGs or who have recently served, or are currently serving, on SSHRC review committees.

IDG supports research in its initial stages. The grants enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theorteical approaches and/or ideas. Funding is provided for short-term research development projects, of up to two years, proposed by individuals or teams. Awards range from $7,000 to $75,000.
