ARB Eligibility


To be eligible for ARB funding an applicant must be affiliated with McMaster University and must be eligible for SSHRC funding under the SSHRC Institutional Grants (SIG) program.

 

The following will be considered affiliated with McMaster University:

  • Faculty members of McMaster University with a tenured or tenure-stream
    academic appointment.

  • Former faculty members of McMaster University who have retired while holding
    a tenured academic appointment.

  • Persons holding at least a one-year contractually-limited appointment at McMaster University. In the event the grantee's appointment at McMaster ends, unspent funds remaining at that time will be returned to the Arts Research Board.

  • Postdoctoral fellows who are conducting scholarly activity in the Humanities or Social Sciences and who are supervised by a faculty member of McMaster University who holds a tenured or tenure-stream appointment.

  • Other persons who hold permanent appointments at McMaster University, who meet SSHRC eligibility criteria for SIG funding, and whose applications are approved by their Faculty Dean.
