Faculty of Medicine projects supported by SSHRC funding programs

Researchers from the Faculty of Medicine received funding under the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Partnership Grants, Partnership Development and Insight Grants Programs.

A total of 58 new projects led by UBC researchers received $ 13 million through programs and an additional $ 2.1 million was awarded to 35 UBC-led projects announced last year through the Insight Development Grants competition.

These scholarships were announced as part of the Government of Canada’s research investment of over $ 635 million, which also included funding through NSERC Discovery Grants and the Canada Research Chairs Program. New projects led by UBC researchers and new and renewed UBC Canada research chairs have received approximately $ 48 million of this announced investment.

SSHRC Insight Grants

SSHRC Insight Grants support research excellence in the social and human sciences. Funding is available to emerging and established researchers for research initiatives of two to five years. Stable support for long-term research initiatives is essential for advancing knowledge. It allows researchers to address complex questions about individuals and societies, and to deepen our collective understanding.
