Western Strategic Support for SSHRC Success

Funded by the Office of the Vice-President (Research), the Western Strategic Support (WSS) for SSHRC Success program offers two funding opportunities identified as the Seed and Open grants. These grants are targeted at all researchers who are pursuing SSHRC-related research. The intent of these grants is to offer critical, one-time funding to support an individual investigator’s research activities for the subsequent development of strong, competitive submissions to external, peer-reviewed research sponsors.

The merit of each proposal will be assessed by the Social Science & Humanities Review Board (SSHRB) on innovation, impact, deliverables (both long- and short-term), proposed methodology, HQP training plan and proposed budget. Successful applicants are expected to develop and submit competitive research proposals to a SSHRC competition within two years of the award’s start date.
