    Piagetsky reacted to Antikythera in SSHRC Doctoral 2019-2020   
    Last year I was trounced with a low 7 score and it hit me hard. I hit the grind and doubled the length of my CV in the intervening year, and this time I got a 16/20 and a CGS D. It feels like a narrow victory, but now I have a moment of peace that, dare I say it, feels earned.

    Also, to give hope to some of you, my friend just got word this morning and won a CGS-D. So not all rejections today!

    hello everyone,
    so sorry for those who didn't get it. i am at mcgill where they also inform students who won. i'm waiting still and have not heard from sshrc.
    anyhow, just wanted to say that sshrc is not only incompetent (how difficult is it to send some 2000 results over 2-3 hours?) but also unethical to do this. and that these competitions are entirely arbitrary and sometimes really it just depends on whether your committee had breakfast or no.

    Will let you know but not feeling too hopeful. Friday was a lot of Bombardier announcements. Cruel and unusual punishment if they did that on purpose. I'd have some feedback for them on the mental stress for students waiting.

    My results were finally posted. If anyone wants to commiserate, I understand. Whatever it is, SSHRC seems to have very different criteria than most other granting agencies. So, if you got rejected don't despair. In my experience, success with SSHRC doesn't  correlate to success elsewhere.
     
    I'm a PhD candidate (year 4) and this was my last year to apply. Thankfully, I don't really need SSHRC this year. I managed to get a 48 000 CAD scholarship from a Japanese granting agency for the next academic year, and I had 45 000 CAD from an American agency this past academic year. Prior to those major grants, I've had over 20 000 CAD in small grants from outside agencies. My applications have been well received by the SSRC, Japan Foundation, JSPS, among others.

    I'm not saying this to brag but to show that SSHRC must have some baffling criteria. This is the first time I've actually gotten a numbered score -- the previous three attempts I didn't make SSHRC's first cut. Now, I am blessed with a number: 6.5/20 !

    Yes. It doesn't make sense to be honest.
    Last year, I got a Vanier but did not get FRQSC. For the exact same research project. So congrats you everyone who got the award and for those who did not, please please please don't take it personally or as a reflection of your worth and potential in academia.

    Thank you! So excited.
    Thinking mostly of applicants in future years who might trawl through this thread, I hope it might be useful to document my "journey" with SSHRC.
    2014-15: SSHRC CGS-M Waitlisted, unsuccessful.
    2015-16 SSHRC CGS-M Successful: Rewrote application entirely.
    2019-20: SSHRC CGS-D Rejected: Direct applicant, not yet accepted to school at time of application.
    2019-20: OGS Successful: Using trimmed version of CGS-D . 
    2020-21: SSHRC CGS-D Successful: Institutional applicant, applied during first year of doctorate. Rewrote application entirely, this time with help from many profs in my dept and university SSHRC-writing workshops. In terms of CV changes since previous application, the only major change is that I had won OGS and been accepted to my program. Score of 17.5/20 - but last year I got 9/20!
    I was really crushed by those past rejections, and things could have easily turned out differently this round if my adjudicators had had a different food for breakfast. It's all a roll of the dice, except that no matter what we get stronger, more confident, and more fully formed as we go through iterations. For those who have gotten (or will get) rejections/waitlisted, I feel you so so keenly and I hope my data points are another assurance that your work will ultimately pay off.

    My university just emailed to say I got the CGS-D Bombardier. I got waitlisted last year and am completely shocked/thrilled and will probably spend the next few hours sobbing with relief. My university is cutting some funding programs so was anticipating some very lean years otherwise or possibly having to drop out for a while.

    Good points. Also some people who got log in info and didn't receive one might not feel like sharing (and fair enough, I'll prob be too busy moping to share my rejection straight away, haha).

    Oh gosh, that sucks. Been through two of those myself as my wife works in healthcare. Here's hoping your positive and negative results are in the right places. 🤞

    I think this is a moment where you're kind to yourself and you don't work. Especially during a pandemic, I've realized that deadlines are flexible.
