SSHRC-SIG Award results, 2019 call

Posted on: May 21, 2019

The results from the 2019 SSHRC-SIG call are ready. The Research and Faculty Development Committee has finished adjudicating applications for the Exchange and Explore programs.

The 2019 call was very competitive. We received a variety of strong applications to both programs. Adjudication was based on merit of the application and the applicant.

The Office of Research Services congratulates the recipients of awards on their success, and encourages all the CUE Faculty to participate in the next call, in 2020. We would also like to thank SSHRC for supporting CUE in the quest to generate relevant research in the Social Sciences.

SSHRC-SIG Explore and Exchange Grants are sponsored by SSHRC through an institutional grant. CUE receives additional funding from the Tri-Agency via the Research Support Fund (RSF). For further information on the RSF, please visit our website.
