  1. U de M is imo. the best place as far as Canadian politics go, the downside being that the coursework is in French.

    CGS-M 2015-2016

    They're not strict, it's a recommendation. "SSHRC strongly suggests [...]" "You may work as a research assistant (receiving an hourly wage)." http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/using-utiliser/guide-A/regulations-reglements-eng.aspx
  3. I think your next step is to figure out exactly whom you'd like to work with.
  4. Apply. I personally have a quite miserable undergraduate gpa and still got a cgs-m two years ago and a cgs-d a few weeks ago.
  5. I'm assuming it was half of the yearly amount that was transferred (10K). Otherwise it doesn't make sense.
  6. Mine were consistent to some extent but it just shows the randomness involved and the importance of uncontrollable factors such as the members composing the juries and their preferences. Fellowships are a lottery imo.
  7. Btw, Quebec applicants, today was news day for the FRQSC. This seasons was a home-run
  8. I think they mention somewhere in the guidelines that they subtract 12 months from the calculations in those cases. Meaning they evaluated you as if you were in your second and not third year.
  9. I wouldn't hold my breath but you might get bumped to an A during the summer. I know of somebody with barely a few decimals over you with an A (same subcommittee, same field). If a few (?) people downgrade from A to B to go international that is.
  10. I wouldn't verse into dichotomous interpretations. I'm aware of at least one cgs-d recipient whose proposal was extremely weak but had one publication.
  11. Thanks! I'm a 4.5 hours drive away from Ottawa give or take a few minutes.
  12. As if opening my mail box wasn't already stressful enough.
