SSHRC Insight Grants

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on June 12, 2023 in Research Funding

Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities. Funding is available to both emerging and established scholars for research initiatives of two to five years. Insight Grant research initiatives can be undertaken by an individual researcher or a team of researchers working in collaboration. Insight Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program.

Insight Grants are valued at up to $400,000 over two to five years. Applicants choose from one of two streams when applying for an Insight Grant, depending on the amount of funding required:

  • Stream A for requests between $7,000 and $100,000; or
  • Stream B for requests between $100,001 and $400,000.

Please refer to the competition overview for more details.
