Priority Areas

Most SSHRC funding is awarded through open competitions accessible to all disciplines, areas, themes and approaches. In certain cases, priority areas have been identified for additional support, a more tailored adjudication, or both.

Please check your funding opportunity’s description to see if SSHRC’s priority areas are applicable to that opportunity. Then read the following priority area descriptions carefully to determine whether your intended proposal is relevant to one of them.
