UBC Sauder faculty have been awarded over $360,000 in 2022 Insight Development Grants for their research, made possible by the Government of Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

The grants were part of an investment of more than $1 billion in funding to support scientists, researchers and students, announced this week by the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. The investment, made through a number of funding programs, will support researchers across Canada in different fields, disciplines and stages of their careers.

Funding is available to both emerging and established scholars for research initiatives of two to five years. Stable support for long-term research initiatives is central to advancing knowledge.
