An Indiegogo campaign started by The Rebel Media, a conservative news and opinion website, has raised over $170,000 in support of U of T psychology professor Jordan Peterson after his funding proposal was denied for the first time in his career.

The decision was made by a currently-anonymous review committee from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the postsecondary-based federal research funding agency. The names of this year's committee members will be released on the SSHRC's website once the review process is complete.

On Twitter, Peterson said his previous proposal to the same agency "received more funding than any other in the history of the U Toronto Psych Dept."

This time, however, Peterson said his proposal received "an exceedingly low rating."
