Research Western has just launched an online Final Report form for internal grants, which can be found on most of the programs’ websites and on Research Western’s website for Internal Grants. Any information “submitted” via this online form will be emailed to both the award recipient and email@example.com and would not remain online. Please review the instructions provided at the top of the form before completing.
Note: In most cases, those who have received internal support are required to submit a final report within 3 – 6 months of the grant ending. If required, it will be stated in the recipient’s award letter and the internal program’s guidelines.
Please send questions and feedback on the new Final Report form to firstname.lastname@example.org.

2) Grant writing for a multidisciplinary committee
3) SSHRC committee scoring and how this relates to effective grant writing
4) Application process and procedures: dates and deadlines to remember!
5) If you are thinking about applying to either SSHRC Partnership Development or Partnership Grants – discuss how your Insight Grant should be positioned in relation to these larger grants.
