Details on SSHRC's Insight Grant 2022

Posted on Thursday, July 7, 2022

The portal is now open for the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Grants competition. The faculty had a 57.5% success rate in 2019 and and 55% in 2020, so we encourage you to apply.

Once again, the Faculty of Social Sciences will be coordinating a voluntary proposal review initiative. We are encouraging colleagues to submit their proposals by August 27 for pre-review. An incentive of $500 is offered to colleagues who meet this early deadline. Here are some tips and resources to assist you in preparing your submission.


  • ASAP – Confirm your intention to submit a proposal to Sophie LeTouzé, Senior Research Advisor.
  • August 26 - Deadline to hand in your draft if you wish to receive detailed feedback
  • September 27 at 12 p.m. - Internal deadline for submitting your application and RE form. Signatures for the RE form are not guaranteed after this date. Verify and electronically submit your application online from your SSHRC portfolio. (Once your application has been submitted, it cannot be modified.)
  • October 3 at 8 p.m. – SSHRC deadline





  • Write your proposal in clear, plain language (non-technical terms) and avoid jargon.
  • Use the sub-titles provided in your Detailed Description section.
  • Respect the number of pages and presentation guidelines
