SSHRC announces the 2019-20 Insight Development Grants recipients

The Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) has awarded over $32 million to more than 1,045 researchers from 69 Canadian institutions, resulting from the 2019-20 Insight Development Grants competition.

Insight Development Grants support research in its early stages. They enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches or ideas. Funding is provided to individuals or teams for projects of up to two years.

Among the projects being funded is research that will investigate:

  • the building blocks of constructing gender and race in primary education;
  • young Canadians’ success in career decision-making in a digital economy; and
  • the impact of mental health climate on employees.

Projects such as these show how social sciences and humanities research contributes to strengthening our society’s health, education and economy.
