Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)
Travel grants are intended to subsidize the cost of travel required to support national and international knowledge mobilization within and/or beyond the research community. It is the expectation that applicants who receive a travel grant will apply for an external SSHRC grant (any program) within three years of the end of their travel grant.
Travel grants will no longer be available to reimburse travel expenses/claims which have occurred in the past. The proposed dates of travel for September 1 competition will fall between October 1, 2017 to February 28, 2018.
Please see the SSHRC Institutional Grant webpage for deadlines and proposed dates of travel for all four SSRCH SIG Travel competitions.
All regular faculty members, including probationary, tenured and contractually-limited term appointees, are eligible. Contractually-limited term applicants and postdoctoral fellows 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 are also eligible for this program. Visiting fellows and scholars are not eligible.
Maximum Project Value
$1,500 will be made to successful applicants in any one calendar year. Applicants may only submit one application in each competition.
Travel funds awarded are to be spent within 60 days after the date of the conference or award date (whichever is later). Funds not utilized within this 60-day period will be recalled.
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.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
