SSHRC Insight Grants - Fall 2017 applications

The SSHRC Insight Grant application materials are now available on the SSHRC website.  Please see the attached information regarding application timelines and the UPEI submission process. Contact Leslie Cudmore ( if you wish to be added to an internal list in order to receive direct communications and updates regarding this competition.     

Please note the following key points and updates for the October 2017 competition:
Value and Duration
The maximum value of an Insight Grant is $400,000, over two to five years. A minimum request of $7,000 is required in at least one of the years. A maximum of $100,000 is available in a single year.
Applicants may choose one of two streams when applying for an Insight Grant, depending on the amount of funding required: Stream A for requests between $7,000 and $100,000, and Stream B for requests between $100,001 and $400,000.  Both streams will be adjudicated by the same committees, and will receive the same rigorous level of merit review. The deadlines and application process are identical for both; however, the targeted success rate for Stream A will be higher than that of Stream B.
Multiple applications
Normally, researchers may not apply, as an applicant, for an Insight Grant and an Insight Development Grant within the same calendar year. However, given the launch of the smaller Insight Grants stream in 2017, researchers who applied unsuccessfully for an Insight Development Grant in February 2017 may apply for an Insight Grant in October 2017.
