    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    Mine was similar. The waitlist letter last year had "I regret to inform you ... " as the start of the 2nd paragraph. It then went on to say it was of high enough quality to be placed on a waitlist. I really wish it said something like: "Close, but no cigar." Awards like these are not a measure of our worth as scholars, the worth of our research, or our worth as humans on this planet. This is obviously important to remember when "I regret to inform" letters arrive, but I think it's equally important to remember if the other kind of letter arrives.

    I think "end of April" means April 30 in that sentence. 7 more sleeps?

    Last year, results were mailed on April 27. The year before, it was April 23, if memory serves. My guess is that results will be mailed by Friday and letters will arrive the week of April 29. If it's sooner: great. But I'm trying to persuade myself to focus on other things this week. (Haha. Ha.) Wish me luck with that.

    If you're looking for conversation about the April 2019 results, anticipated at the end of April, head over here:

    Last year, the letter hit my mailbox in Edmonton on April 30 or May 1. This depends, too, on when they are mailed. In recent years, SSHRC has announced on Twitter when they are mailed.

    Yes, just a few more weeks. @TBay, sorry for your loss and the rough weeks in the recent rear view. As I understand it, the two awards are scored differently. Be hopeful, and be gentle with yourself during these next few weeks (and always).

    Yes, I did hear back later that day (May 9). Be sure to quote your reference number from your letter, if you haven't done so already. No harm in following up after a week or so.

    Congrats! Time to celebrate! What changes would you say made the difference? (I'm waitlisted and it looks like I'll be trying again.) Advice welcome.

    I sent an email last Wednesday. On Monday they forwarded it to a program officer. Replies expected in 4 business days. I expect to hear by the end of the week.

    Hi Kraven—Congrats! Which committee were you in?

    I find the stats helpful in moments like these. http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/results-resultats/stats-statistiques/index-eng.aspx Ultimately, it’s pretty rare to get one of these awards. And everyone who doesn’t get one of the awards is still doing valuable and interesting work—otherwise we wouldn’t be here. I know that being awarded a SSHRC is partly luck. The differences are so small. Be well. Take heart. Celebrate the good days and the good work you’re doing.

    For those on the waitlist, I believe you can email SSHRC directly to ask for your position in line. (At least that's what some in last year's forum did.) I'd assume you'd use fellowships@sshrc-crsh.gc.ca.
