Grant Assist Program for Social Sciences and Humanities

GAP SS&H Wordle based on analysis of keywords assigned to 88,453 SSHRC payments made between 2005 - 2015.

The Grant Assist Program, Social Sciences and Humanities was an initiative offered by the Office of the Vice-President (Research & Innovation) from 2011 to 2020. It succeeded in enhancing the quality and competitiveness of applications to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and other major research competitions. Supports available to continuing faculty members, described as the "Toolkit for Success", are being restructured into the Research Services Office's "Research Relationships" team, where the GAP directors have been appointed as Senior Advisers, Research Development. New supports continue to be developed (eg: The Research Whisperer Hour). Reports on activities and supports, and faculty feedback on the supports offered, are listed below.
