How to Apply
Although the 2024-25 competition has not yet formally launched, York is proceeding with a Notice of Intent (NOI) process given the strategic importance and extreme competitiveness of the program. This process is designed to provide early feedback and support to strengthen Stage 1 applications.
All Stage 1 applicants are required to submit an NOI to the Strategic and Institutional Research Initiatives (SIRI) team in the Office of Research Services (ORS) no later than 9 am onNovember 27, 2023. Applicants are encouraged to meet with the SIRI team to access support at earlier stages of their proposal development.NOI packages will be reviewed by the Strategic Project and Opportunity Review Team (SPORT), as well as the SIRI team, with feedback returned to Project Directors by December 18, 2023.
Please Note: SSHRC Partnership Grants are required to secure 35% (minimum) additional cash and/or in-kind contributions. To facilitate this, applicants should notify their respective Department, Faculty Research Office, ORU (if applicable) and the SIRI team as soon as possible of their intent to apply.
Also note that to enhance York’s competitiveness, the Office of the Vice-President Research & Innovation has recently implemented a new framework to match Faculty cash commitments, provided proposals undergo SPORT review.
