Insight Grants

How to Apply: 

Insight Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program.

Insight Grants support research excellence in the social sciences and humanities. Funding is available to both emerging and established scholars for research initiatives of two to five years.

Stable support for long-term research initiatives is central to advancing knowledge. It enables scholars to address complex issues pertaining to individuals and societies, and to further our collective understanding.

Insight Grants support research proposed by scholars and judged worthy of funding by their peers and/or other experts. Insight Grant research initiatives may be undertaken by an individual researcher or a team of researchers working in collaboration.

Applicants choose from one of two streams, depending on the amount of funding required. Both streams will be adjudicated by the same committees, and will receive the same rigorous level of merit review. The deadlines and application process are identical for both; however, the targeted success rate for Stream A is higher than for Stream B.

SSHRC welcomes applications involving Indigenous research, as well as those involving research-creation.

The Canadian Hemophilia Society – Bayer ADVANCE Canada Research Program

How to Apply: 

The Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) is proud to put out its call for applications for its new research program created in collaboration with Bayer and ADVANCE Canada.

 

The Canadian Hemophilia Society – Bayer ADVANCE Canada Research Program was created to engage Canadian hemophilia treaters in activities to identify and research key issues in the ageing hemophilia population.

 

The research program will support studies that aim to:

 

•             Identify and provide insight into key issues associated with the ageing hemophilia population

•             Identify how management of age-related co-morbidities should be adapted to those with hemophilia

•             Create and deliver evidence-based information to health care practitioners (HCPs), the public and policy makers that will lead to improved care and QoL for older Canadians living with hemophilia

 

The primary intent of this program is to offer one or two $30,000 research grants, to a maximum of $60,000 for one year.

 

All completed application forms and support documents must arrive at the National Office of the Canadian Hemophilia Society on or before August 31, 2018. If the CHS receives the application after the deadline date but it is postmarked on or before the deadline date, then it is considered to have been submitted on time. The names of the successful applicants will be announced by October, 2018.

 

Additional information, the eligibility criteria and conditions for the research program as well as the application form can be found on our website at this link:

Partnership Engage Grants

How to Apply: 

Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and the Connection program. Please note that Partnership Engage Grants cannot respond exclusively to the objectives of the Connection program.
They provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through the Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.

Catalyst Grant : PTSI among PSP workers

How to Apply: 

Public safety personnel (PSP) such as firefighters, police, paramedics, search and rescue volunteers, correctional services workers and officers, border services officers, operational and intelligence analysts, and Indigenous emergency managers, all play a critical role in keeping Canadians safe. They put themselves in harm’s way to protect Canadians from a spectrum of threats, often at great personal risk. In doing so, PSP are repeatedly exposed to potentially traumatic or disturbing experiences that can take a significant toll on their mental health and well-being. Chief among these mental health issues are post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI), which refer to a broad set of persistent psychological difficulties including those resulting from operational duties performed as PSP (also known as operational stress injuries). Extending beyond clinically diagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), PTSI can also include substance use, anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions.

Efforts to advance the knowledge base of PTSI, and PTSD in particular, are underway in other populations such as the military; nevertheless, data examining the impact of PTSI on mental health outcomes among distinct PSP groups and their unique occupational environments remain limited in Canada. Both public safety and health stakeholders have identified a need for additional research in this area.

Building on previous investments in brain and mental health research, CIHR-INMHA is launching the Post-Traumatic Stress Injuries among Public Safety Personnel funding opportunity to catalyze research projects that have a primary focus on understanding, identifying, mitigating and/or preventing PTSI and adverse mental health outcomes among PSP.

Research Areas

This funding opportunity will support applications relevant to one or more of the following priority areas:

  • Data collection, analysis and/or reporting on the incidence and prevalence of PTSI in PSP, which may also include information on relevant co-morbidities and health determinants
  • Biological, clinical and social characteristics of PTSI, including differences that contribute to the risk for developing PTSI and measures/characteristics that may be associated with better treatment outcomes and resilience among PSP
  • Prevention, including measures, programs and interventions with potential to limit the number of new cases of PTSI among PSP
  • Diagnosis, including assessment procedures and guidelines to improve existing or establish new clinical validation tools for PTSI in PSP
  • Treatment and intervention, such as psychological and clinical approaches related to symptom reduction in PSP
  • Mental health awareness, stigma reduction, anti-discrimination, and/or literacy programs that have the potential to improve mental wellness among PSP

Applicants must integrate sex and gender perspectives into their research to promote rigorous science that has the potential to expand our understanding of health determinants for all people. As such, applicants are required to indicate how they will account for sex (biological factor) and gender (socio-cultural factor) in the research design, methods, analysis and interpretation, and dissemination of findings. For more information and resources, please see the Sex, Gender and Health Research page on the CIHR website.

This report was commissioned by the Foundation which led to the launch of the Connecting Region program. The Foundation understands that there are multiple definitions of “rural” and is open to regional efforts that include smaller urban centers as part of this call.
