Description:Insight Development Grants support research in its initial stages.The grants enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches and/or ideas. Funding is provided for short-term research development projects, of up to two years, proposed by individuals or teams.
Eligibility: Both emerging and regular scholars who are affiliated with an eligible Canadian post-secondary institution are eligible to apply. A Principal Investigator (PI) must be eligible to hold a research account.
NOTE Regarding Applications: For the 2015 competition all applications will be submitted using the Research Portal. The Canadian Common CV (CCV) will also be used in place of the former SSHRC CV. If you have not previously used the CCV you are strongly advised to allow plenty of time for completion of the CCV for yourself and your co-applicants/ collaborators. Instructions for SSHRC CCV
Insight Development Grants and Insight Grants: Researchers may not apply, as applicant, for an Insight Development Grant and an Insight Grant within the same calendar year. For instance, a researcher who applies for an Insight Development Grant in February 2014 may not apply for an Insight Grant in October 2014, whether successful in the competition or not. However, a researcher who applied for an Insight Grant in October 2014 may apply for an Insight Development Grant in February 2015, provided that the objectives of the research are different.
Full Applications are to be processed through Research Development & Services and are to be accompanied by a completed ROLA.
SSHRC will be holding webinars concerning the IDG in January. Information concerning these will be shared as soon as it is available.
