Working on SSHRC-funded research? Here’s an opportunity

UToday HomeFebruary 28, 2013

Calling all storytellers, data journalists, social media masters and aspiring filmmakers.

Cash prizes and opportunities to present research at national and international events are up for grabs as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) invites submissions on how social research is making an impact on everyday lives.

SSHRC is challenging postsecondary students to show Canadians how social sciences and humanities research is affecting our lives, our world and our future prosperity.

Students are invited to make a pitch communicating the details of a great SSHRC-funded research project happening at their institution.

Twenty-five first-round winners will receive a cash prize valued at $3,000 and an invitation to participate in a specialized research communications workshop at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, in Victoria, in June, and to deliver their pitch at the Storytellers Showcase at Congress.

Five final winners will have the chance to deliver a featured presentation at the World Social Science Forum in Montreal in October.

Submissions will be accepted until March 1.
