More than 3,000 social sciences and humanities researchers have been awarded $265 million as part of an annual competition held by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The government says that in addition to providing core support, the funding is intended to help researchers build stronger partnerships with the private and not-for-profit sectors. The projects were funded under SSHRC’s recurring programs, including the doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships competition awards; partnership program; the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarships Program for doctoral and master’s; and the Canada Graduate Scholarships to Honour Nelson Mandela Competition Awards. The Mandela awards were launched in 2014 in honour of the South African anti-apartheid leader and the country’s first post-apartheid president. SSHRC also announced recipients of the Genome Canada and SSHRC Joint Initiative on Societal Implications of Genomics Research program grants. SSHRC’s funding opportunities are competitive and merit-based and support research and training at the post-secondary level. A list of fund recipients are on the SSHRC website.
