    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    I felt the same way. I received my letter three days ago. However, I was sitting outside waiting for the mail person and I watched him put a brown envelope in my neighbor's mailbox and then skip my house. I stopped him and asked about the mail but he said there was nothing for my house. I went and knocked on my neighbor's door and there was no answer. So I looked in their mailbox and that brown envelope was my letter from SSHRC. So mistakes do happen. I definitely felt horrible going through my neighbor's mailbox but I just knew it was my letter. I also saw my neighbor the next day and told him what I did. LOL.

    Are any of you planning to give a "thank you" card to your letter writers?

    What committee? I think the scores for each award vary by committee, so I'm just curious! I got 13.8 and the regular sshrc.

    Thankfully also got my notification from my school, but the postal worker just came and went and there was no letter! I'm in Guelph.

    Congrats! Yay! What a wait! I had a little cry already around lunch preparing for defeat. LOL.

    I just received news from Waterloo that I won a SSHRC fellowship! The email came at 3:45 pm.

    Yes, keep me posted if you hear anything! I will do the same!

    I have not heard from Waterloo and I just found out a few minutes ago from the chair of my department that she hasn't heard anything as well.

    I've definitely been playing around on Lotus tarot! LOL.

    Interesting. I am not a current SSHRC holder and I got it. The email was from someone in the grad awards office to my grad coordinator and said to please forward the info to those who are eligible to apply. But honestly, I think the grad coordinator is lazy and probably emailed it to our entire department. LOL.

    Did they email you by name? My school sent an email a week ago to the grad students in my department. It was sent by the grad coordinator and included a pdf about how to apply but it wasn't an individualized email.

    Don't feel so bad. You honestly can't control how your external reader will react (I also read your post on reddit). I'm a second year PhD and my advisor said he did not recommend a specific prof I was interested in for my committee because he is really critical and difficult. He would not have known this if that professor didn't invite him to his home university to help review one of his upcoming books. So I feel like I am dodging a bullet. It's not always a lack of skill, but sometimes problematic people. Work super hard this month and I'm sure everything will work out. ❤️

    Anyone waiting for OGS? I thought I saw some posts that some students were awarded OGS already? Or maybe I am mixed up with old threads I read. I'm just worried whether cuts could be possible to OGS by the Ford government. University of Guelph: *University of Guelph 2019-20 OGS allocations will be updated above when they are confirmed by the ministry. University of Waterloo: APRIL 23, 2019 UPDATE: The University of Waterloo has not yet received official communication from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) regarding the number of OGS/QEII-GSST awards available for 2019-2020. As such, OGS and QEII-GSST award notification emails will be delayed and will not be sent to applicants on April 23, 2019 as originally anticipated. Please continue to check this page for updates. Western University: *pending approval of allocations by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU)

    So any assumptions on whether SSHRC results have been mailed out? Easter long weekend has thrown off any predictions for me on where our applications might be in the process. Also, who from SSHRC is tweeting on a Saturday? LOL.
