McGill researchers receive SSHRC Insight Development Grants

Published: 3 April 2024

Thirty McGill researchers across disciplines have received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) through their Insight Development Grants competition. In total, $35.3 million in funding for 577 research projects at 66 Canadian institutions was announced.

Aimed at supporting research in its early stages, Insight Development Grants enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches, and ideas. Funding is available to both emerging scholars and established scholars for research initiatives of up to two years.

The Insight Development Grants competition is part of SSHRC’s Insight Research program, which aims to fuel excellence in social sciences and humanities research to deepen our collective understanding of individuals and societies, as well as to inform the search for solutions to societal challenges.

The research being funded at McGill includes projects that will, among other things, examine inflation politics in the United States, unpack open data initiatives for environmental nonprofit organizations, and explore the integration of emerging technologies into secondary math curricula.
