Research and advancements in the social sciences and humanities is vital for expanding our understanding and knowledge of individuals, groups, societies and the world. Such research can guide how we address economic, cultural, social, environmental and technological issues. The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) recognizes and supports research excellence in these areas and awards individuals and groups with funding with the goal of building knowledge and understanding to better inform the research community as well as the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
