    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    Probably not super common, but you can’t take the CGS out of the country so anyone studying at a foreign university has to downgrade, which frees up the bigger award for someone else.

    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    I think it’s hard to predict successful applications because it’s so random. I know people who have gotten SSHRC with no publications/presentations, lower GPA, etc. while some of the most qualified people I know have been rejected.

    On top of Vanier, it’s also common for people to get the CGS, but downgrade to the fellowship because they’re in the US. In that case, someone with the fellowship is upgrade to CGS and someone on the waitlist will get the fellowship.

    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    I have similar concerns. My topic is mostly social, but uses methods that are more common in health/science, and definitely has applications for these fields. Combined with publications and presentations that are obviously health-focused, I wonder if I came across as just applying to SSHRC because it’s easier than CIHR (even though I had SSHRC CGS-M). But oh well. I’ll try again in the fall with a stronger application.

    I think NSERC and CIHR do it like that, or similarly. There’s absolutely no reason why SSHRC can’t do the same thing. It bothers me that they have so little consideration for applicants.

    Great... my department had a very strong group of applicants this year so I really don’t know where I stand. I imagine it hurts your application to be lower ranked.

    Do the reviewers see our internal ranking or is that just used to determine who is sent to the national competition?

    I got a similar email from my grad awards officer about a week ago, but it looked like it was sent to all current SSHRC holders (I have an MA SSHRC this year).

    Anything to avoid my thesis 😂

    They tweeted at 12:41pm EST last year. Not that I just combed through a years worth of tweets or anything...
  11. I applied the fall after I finished undergrad. I was accepted at 22 and started soon after turning 23. I kind of wish I had waited longer, and my other classmates in the 22-24ish range felt similarly. Not to say that younger students are immature or unprepared, I just feel that I lack perspective and experience outside of academia compared to some.

    I heard the same thing. The application packages were probably delayed in getting to Ottawa. If only SSHRC would switch to online applications/notification like CIHR and NSERC have been doing for years...

    As long as your new research still falls under SSHRC’s mandate, you’re fine. I don’t think you even need to notify SSHRC. There’s no expectation that you’ll complete your proposed study since they know you likely applied to many schools. I know someone who wrote their SSHRC proposal on adult relationships but their MA thesis is on cognitive development and they haven’t had any issues.

    How did you find your area/topic of interest in research?

    I narrowed down my interests by doing research. I joined a lab that sounded interesting to me, and as I became more familiar with the topics and methodologies within that area, I was able to define my interests. That’s not to say that my particular research area is my only interest, or that I don’t find other topics equally interesting. But I find it harder to come up with research questions in other areas because I don’t know the theory or methods.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Canadian Applicants!

    The clinical committee met last week, so I would expect offers to go out very soon (some offers may have been made already). I know a lot of grad students in that program and the time between their interviews and admission varied a lot, so don’t worry too much if you haven’t heard yet.
