The objective of the Insight Grant is to provide support for long-term research initiatives central to advancing knowledge. 

The grant enables both emerging and established scholars, individual researchers or teams in the social sciences and humanities to 1) address complex issues pertaining to individuals and societies, and 2) further our collective understanding.

NEW  Joint Initiative for Digital Citizen Research

Canadian Heritage is partnering with SSHRC to provide research grants and research training supplements through three arms-length funding opportunities, including the SSHRC Insight Grant.

The funding provides assistance to selected postsecondary institution-affiliated researchers, postdoctoral scholars and students to conduct research related to online disinformation and other online harms, as well as their impact in the Canadian context.

The Joint Initiative has three broad objectives:

1.  to promote Canadian research that will develop better understanding — based on empirical evidence — of the impacts of online disinformation in Canada, in order to better inform programs and policies;

2.  to build Canada's capacity to conduct research on and related to countering online disinformation and other related online harms, specifically in the target areas described below; and

3.  to help foster a community of research in the digital citizenship and online disinformation space in Canada.

 

SSHRC will accept applications for the Joint Initiative for Digital Citizen Research for the October 15, 2019 competition
