You have been invited to participate as a co-applicant on a Partnership Grant—Stage 1 application for the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

You are encouraged to consult the instructions while you are completing your form by clicking “Instructions” at any time to access the instructions for the screen you are completing.

Accepting your invitation

When you accept this invitation, you will be required to complete the Accept Invitation—Co-applicant Information form.

Once this form is complete, return to your Portfolio page to verify and correct the data until the Verification Report indicates successful verification. A PDF copy of your Accept Invitation form will be attached to the applicant’s application form. The status on the Portfolio will change from “In Progress” to “Verified.” You can preview the form and print it in PDF format by clicking the “Preview” button.

When the applicant / project director electronically submits their application form to the institution’s research administrator, the status on your Portfolio for that Accept Invitation form will change to “Submitted.”

Removal from the application

If you decide not to participate in an application, click on “Delete.” The system will remove the invitation from your Portfolio and SSHRC’s database. It will generate an email notifying the applicant / project director that you have deleted the invitation.

The applicant / project director may remove you from the list of participants at any time, at which point the invitation will disappear from your Portfolio and SSHRC’s database, and you will receive a system-generated email.

Application summary

The information provided by the applicant / project director in the Identification module of their application form is automatically included here. The fields are not editable; they are read-only.
