The description is now available on the SSHRC website at the following link: http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/programs-programmes/insight_grants-subventions_savoir-eng.aspx
This funding opportunity offers support for long-term research initiatives. The maximum value of an Insight Grant is $500,000 over three to five years.
This new opportunity is open to both emerging and established scholars who are affiliated with an eligible Canadian post-secondary institution. The deadline for submitting applications is October 15, 2011. The application form will be available mid-July 2011.

Multiple Grant Applications
Researchers may not apply for an Insight Grant and an Insight Development Grant within the same calendar year as applicant (principal investigator).
· A researcher who applied for an Insight Development Grant in February 2011 may not apply for an Insight Grant in October 2011, whether successful in the competition or not.
· A researcher who applies for an Insight Grant in October 2011 may apply for an Insight Development Grant in February 2012, provided that the objectives of the research are different.
There is no limit to the number of applications on which a researcher may be listed as a co-applicant or collaborator.
If a researcher holds a grant, she or he may submit a new application to the same funding opportunity in the final year of the grant.
