Grants to Canada researchers affiliated with eligible postsecondary institutions for long-term humanities and social science research initiatives. The purpose of these grants is to provide stable support to initiatives that will advance knowledge and address complex topics. Proposals may involve any disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for SSHRC funding. Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities.
Insight Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program. The objectives of the Insight program are to:
- Build knowledge and understanding from disciplinary, interdisciplinary and/or cross-sector perspectives through support for the best researchers;
- Support new approaches to research on complex and important topics, including those that transcend the capacity of any one scholar, institution or discipline;
- Provide a high-quality research training experience for students;
- Fund research expertise that relates to societal challenges and opportunities; and
- Mobilize research knowledge, to and from academic and non-academic audiences, with the potential to lead to intellectual, cultural, social and economic influence, benefit and impact.
Stable support for long-term research initiatives is central to advancing knowledge. It enables scholars to address complex issues pertaining to individuals and societies, and to further our collective understanding.
Insight Grants support research proposed by scholars and judged worthy of funding by their peers and/or other experts. Insight Grant research initiatives may be undertaken by an individual researcher or a team of researchers working in collaboration.
Applicants choose from one of two streams, depending on the amount of funding required. The deadlines and application process are identical for both; however, the targeted success rate for Stream A is higher than for Stream B.
