Exchange Grants are intended to subsidize the cost of travel required to support national and international knowledge mobilization within and/or beyond the research community.

Applicants who receive an Exchange Grant are expected to apply for an external SSHRC grant (any program) within three (3) years of the end of their Exchange Grant in order to meet application eligibility requirements.

SIG applications may be used to support research and research-related activities in one to several of the disciplines, thematic areas, approaches or subject areas eligible for SSHRC funding. Please see Subject Matter Eligibility for more information.


All regular faculty members, including probationary, tenured and contractually limited term appointees, are eligible. Contractually limited term applicants are eligible, provided they are employed under a contract with the University for a period sufficiently long to make it feasible to carry out the proposed research project and/or travel. Professors emeriti, visiting fellows and scholars are not eligible. SIG funds will support both emerging and established scholars, as defined by SSHRC.
