Insight Development Grants
Valued at up to $75,000 over a period of one to two years, Insight Development Grants support short-term research development projects that involve "the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches and/or ideas."
The projects are selected based on their aim and importance, as well as their feasibility and ability to succeed. In addition, they must respond to the objectives of SSHRC's Insight Program, which include developing new approaches to research on complex and important topics and providing a high-quality research training experience for students.
Partnership Engage Grants
Partnership Engage Grants, valued at up to $25,000 over one year, are expected to respond to the objectives of not only the Insight program, but also the Connection Program, including "[increasing] the accessibility and use of social sciences and humanities research knowledge among academic and non-academic audiences".
The grants aim to support small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships that "respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors". In doing so, these partnerships enable researchers and non-academic organizations to "access each other's unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest."
