SSHRC Impact Awards
SSHRC Impact Awards are designed to build on and sustain Canada’s research-based knowledge culture in the social sciences and humanities. The awards recognize outstanding researchers and celebrate their achievements in research, research training, knowledge mobilization and outreach activities funded partially or completely by SSHRC.
Award funds are to be used for activities that promote and extend the work being honoured. In recognition of the crucial role that postsecondary institutions play as researchers’ knowledge mobilization partners, a minimum of 10 per cent of each award must be used to promote the research achievements of the recipient. Individual recipients and their institutions may choose to devote additional funds, including a higher percentage of the award funds, to these activities. The following awards are available:
