Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Institutional Grant (SIG)

This funding opportunity is offered through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). 

These annual grants allow Queen’s University to fund small-scale research and research-related activities by our faculty in social sciences and humanities.

These funds are awarded through our own merit review processes and are intended to help Queen’s strengthen research excellence.

Funding is provided through two programs:

  • SSHRC Explore Grants:
    • Supporting researchers at any career stage to allow for small-scale project development or pilot work;
    • Fund student participation in projects
  • SSHRC Exchange Grants: 
    • Encourage collaboration and dissemination of research results both within and beyond the academic community through small-scale knowledge mobilization;
    • Allow researchers to attend or present at conferences to advance their careers and promote the exchange of ideas
