SSHRC Templates

arts researchers

For free-form application attachments

The following MS Word templates are intended to assist UNB researchers in preparing the free-form sections of their SSHRC applications by establishing appropriate margins, header and footers, font, and section titles.

Please refer to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council for additional information such as program descriptions, applications forms and procedures, detailed attachment instructions, competition guidelines, and deadlines.

Note: for funding programs with specific deadlines, submission of the complete draft application package is normally due to ORS for review at least 2 weeks prior to the agency's deadline. ORS also requests registration of your intention to apply for any research funding: grant, contract, award or prize. Register by emailing ORS.

The Office of Research Services is pleased to offer an Application Bank with sample applications for a select few funding opportunities.

Common Instructions

  • Replace "Your Name Here", found in the header, with your name by double clicking on the phrase.
  • Do not adjust margins, font, headers or footers. The Template is already set to follow SSHRC specifications.
