  1. I would email later given the current situation. Maybe September-October. A lot of things are up in the air with COVID and I’m guessing that many profs don’t have firm plans yet.
  2. Did they say why? Maybe it’s possible that research or small meetings could resume and they expect you in the lab? Still, it seems crazy to me to expect someone to move and find housing in a new city during a pandemic if the university is closed.
  3. I’m not sure how likely it is that programs would accept a student who does not want to do research and wants to work only on their own terms. It’s not how a PhD works regardless of funding status. Why not find an online program and buy your PhD? Or do a course-based masters?
  4. I think the competition statistics on the SSHRC website show how many CGS-D and fellowships are awarded to each university, discipline and subcommittee, although I could be wrong.
  5. I got 15.9/20 in committee 4 (I think - I’m in psych). Like others, my application was very similar last year, but I was waitlisted with an 11.1/20. I guess it comes down to who happens to read your application.
  6. I got an email from my graduate awards office this morning with information on activating the award. It seemed to be a mass email so I would guess that they received a list of winners for the university... it’s so strange. I don’t know why sshrc would notify some schools but not others.
  7. No idea... I know SSHRC and FRQSC have a formal agreement for disclosure, and SSHRC winners are obligated to reject FRQSC. My impression is that OGS varies by institution and is less strict, but I can’t say for sure.
  8. I wonder if agreements with other funding agencies affect the order that we’re notified... I just noticed my letter said that the results would be communicated directly to the provincial funding body (FRQSC) because SSHRC winners are required to turn down FRQSC if we get it. Don’t know if that makes sense but it might explain why a lot of Quebec students are getting emails/results?
  9. Yeah, I was refreshing off and on all morning and it was finally updated around 11:30. I haven’t received any emails.
  10. Just found out via extranet that I got the CGS-D. I got my login info yesterday but it doesn’t seem to predict anything.

    FRQSC 2020

    It wasn't on the portal until the afternoon. I remember checking all day but there was nothing there until after I got the email.

    FRQSC 2020

    Just a heads up that FRQSC wasn’t posted at midnight for everyone... my results were not available until like 3pm on April 30th. Could be because I didn’t get the award?
  13. The year refers to the year that you begin holding the award, not the year when you apply. Last year’s applicants began receiving funds in the 2019-2020 academic year, so it was considered the 2019-2020 competition. I applied this year and all communications from my awards office have referred to this cycle as the 2020-2021 competition.
  14. I’ve heard of this happening to people by mistake. I would reach out to the institution to see what happened. Not sure if it’ll make a difference because rankings are probably decided by now, but still worth checking.
