SSHRC and Global Affairs Canada have partnered to launch the sixth International Policy Ideas Challenge. Aimed at graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early career researchers from Canadian postsecondary institutions, the challenge provides each of the top six winning entries with a $3,000 award to develop and transform their ideas into policy briefs.
The challenge also provides laureates with coaching including access to subject matter experts, networking and skills development opportunities, which will culminate in presenting the resulting policy briefs to Canadian officials during the 2022 National Ideas Symposium later in 2022.
Submissions should be no more than 750 words in English (or 950 words in French) and speak to one of the themes outlined in the call. For details, including entry guidelines, see the 2022 IPIC call for submissions.
The deadline for submission is May 20, 2022.
