Boot Camps, Retreats, Workshops and Other Grant-Writing Learning Activities

Social sciences and humanities researchers preparing a major SSHRC grant (IDG, IG, PDG, PG) may access learning and mentorship opportunities throughout the year. 

Various opportunities are offered to assist researchers with: research proposal development and best practices, grant application writing, understanding competition requirements and application processes, strategizing long-term navigation of the SSHRC grant architecture, and just getting time for your grant writing. Expert panels and round-tables, information sessions, workshops, writing clubs, 'boot camps' and retreats, and one-on-one mentoring sessions are examples of the range of ways researchers can access advice, support and concrete strategies for preparing a successful grant.

The chart below outlines the the planned activities for the 2016/17 academic year. Use the left sidebar tabs on this page to explore some opportunities in greater detail. Announcements about registration will be circulated on the <sshrcUofA> list. 

The Resource Bank aims to be a one-stop-shop providing helpful advice ranging from academic publications on research grant success to tips on specific aspects of a SSHRC grant. It is augmented by the Successful Grants Library
