    New to Adulthood? Welcome, you have come to the right place!

    Any tips in order to respect a budget?

    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    Hello, so the contest has opened today. Does anyone know what is the font required for the research proposal?

    I failed my thesis.

    Still no news. I'm afraid she will be more severe this time than the first evaluation...

    I failed my thesis.

    Just learned the news today. I am still in shock. I did not expect to fail, even if I knew my thesis was not perfect. I was expecting a pass with revisions. Even my supervisor was not worried for me (she told me so yesterday). I just need emotional support right now. I need not to let my emotions get to me. I have won a major scholarship for my doctoral studies starting in September, so I need to resubmit by August. Otherwise, I am screwed. If I fail a second time, I won't graduate which means that my admission and scholarship offers will be revoked from me.
  5. Hello, Any tips or resources/videos on how to write a letter to editor? That would be helpful.

    I failed my thesis.

    Many people around me think the same as you two @telkanuru and @LEANCO10. I really want to believe she has good faith. Worst case scenario, we're going to appeal to get a new examiner. I feel more confident about the quality of my work since three different professors said my thesis is above the standards for a master's thesis.

    Hello, I will be living on my own for the first time. I do know how to cook, but I feel like meal prepping is going to be a challenge...any tips or apps on how to make that process smooth for someone who used to live in a big family?

    I failed my thesis.

    It’s 4 weeks at my university. Next week it’s going to be four weeks since resubmission. But on the first submission, the examiner gave her report one month late.

    I failed my thesis.

    Thanks @LEANCO10. It's been a teaching moment for me too. If I pass, I definetly have a lot more skills to persevere at the PhD level and in academia. It was not fun, but I hope it will all soon be behind me so I can move forward with my dream of doing a PhD.

    I failed my thesis.

    Thanks. Am still waiting for my grade.
  11. I'm a qualitative researcher and I believe that it's often an interative process (going back and forth). A lot of people talk about the IMRaD strategy (Intro, Methods, Results and Discussion). I would add stuff to my literature review as I was going along, especially when I was doing data analysis. I rarely heard people writing their chapters in the order they are being presented though.
  12. Hello, I'm applying to a scholarship this week. I'm working on a publication that I hope to finish tomorrow if possible. Am I allowed to mention this publication, that it's in preparation (and probably is going to be submitted to a journal tomorrow) even if it hasn't been accepted yet by a journal?
  13. Adelaide9216

    Publication in preparation, scholarship application

    Yes! That’s what I ended up doing

    Vanier 2019-2020

    I didn’t have any publications when I got Vanier. But you should definitely add any conference presentations and RAships you’ve had.

    Vanier 2019-2020

    Yes, add the research assistantship

    Vanier 2018-2019

    Hello, anyone here applying for a Vanier scholarship this year for Fall 2019?

    Vanier 2018-2019

    I have taken a look at the names of the evaluating committees before out of curiosity for my field. I have noticed a few names coming again and again every year of the contest, but most of the names are different from year to year. I believe they don't announce who are on the committees before the competition is entirely over. http://www.vanier.gc.ca/en/selection_committee_members_2018-2019.html

    One of my op-eds got published! And another pitch got accepted to another newspaper!

    Okay, so I've been informed that the contest will probably open in September, although not confirmed 100%.

    Trudeau 2020

    Hello, anyone applying to this year's cycle? Does anyone know if the contest will open in September? I believe last year it was in December but it was exceptional.
  21. Adelaide9216

    I failed my thesis.

    Still waiting for a grade. I'm nervous even though I've been told that everything should be okay.

    Hello, I would put your PhD and MA supervisors as referees for sure. I think it's important to have a referee that is not an academic in my opinion.

    Fall 2019 Phd Social Work /Welfare

    I keep being told that jobs are rare in academia (especially to become a professor.) BUT a lot of professors in social work tell me it is not the case in our field, in Canada. Is this true in your opinion? And what about social work jobs as professors in the US?
  24. Adelaide9216

    Trudeau 2019

    PM me when you apply! I'll try to help. Yes, I will be a PhD incomer in September!

    Trudeau 2019

    Hello, so I just saw on their website that there will be significant changes to the Trudeau scholarships. Any ideas what was the criticism about those scholarships in the past?
