The purpose of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Grant Program is to provide stable support ranging from $7,000 to $400,000 for research excellence and long-term research initiatives of two to five years, for both emerging and established scholars in the social sciences and humanities.

Researchers who are planning to apply to the October 2024 SSHRC Insight Grants (IG) competition are encouraged to attend this information session, which will include:

  • A presentation about the SSHRC IG program objectives and application requirements, as well as McGill institutional support and timelines, including tips and tools to tailor your applications for success by Joanna Mastalerek (Senior Grants and Agreements Officer, OSR) and Preeti Purba-Singh (Grants and Agreements Officer, OSR)
  • Presentations from Dr. Juliet Johnson (Professor, Department of Political Science), a SSHRC merit review committee member and Dr. Lyudmila Parts (Professor, Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures), a former external assessor for the SSHRC IG competition.
    Both presenters will share information about the SSHRC IG evaluation and merit system and strategies for preparing a successful proposal.

Those who are unable to attend and/or those who prefer to share information or questions prior to the information session are invited to send their inquiries to preeti.purba-singh [at] mcgill.ca (Preeti Purba-Singh) in advance so that they may be covered during the session.
