Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC): Insight Grants

The objective of the Insight Grant is to provide support for long-term research initiatives central to advancing knowledge.  The grant enables scholars, both emerging and established in the social sciences and humanities, to address complex issues pertaining to individuals and societies, and to further our collective understanding.

Research initiatives may be undertaken by an individual researcher, or a team of researchers working in collaboration.
