SSHRC Insight Development Grants

Posted by Alana Milner on November 24, 2014 in All

The 2015 Insight Development Grants (IDG) form is now available on the Research Portal.

The following important enhancements and improvements have recently been added to the IDG application form as well as to the Canadian Common CV (CCV):

Insight Development Grant application: Emerging and established scholar module

The Scholar Type section of the Identification module now allows users to more easily determine whether their scholar type should be “emerging scholar’ or “established scholar.”

The questions to determine scholar status have been refined and Emerging scholars are limited to choosing one of the eligibility criteria, and the form will verify their eligibility status by asking for specific dates.

CCV: Importing publications to a CCV

The CCV can now import publication details from external bibliographic databases, such as PubMed, Citeulike, DBLP, Google Scholar, IEEE Xplore, Plos, Scopus, and Web of Science. For details, see the Release Notes and How-To sections of the CCV website.


The SSHRC CCV instructions have also been improved and can be found on the SSHRC website.

Applicants and university Research Offices are advised to review the SSHRC website for recent updates to the IDG description. SSHRC will be holding two webinars on the IDG (one in English and one in French) in January. Information on how to connect will be sent at a later date.

Finally, please note that since February 1st falls on a Sunday, the application submission deadline will be February 2, 2015 at 8 pm Eastern Time. We encourage applicants to complete their SSHRC CCV as soon as possible. Applicants should expect that creating a SSHRC CCV for the first time will require a significant time investment.
