  1. Have any outside-of-Canada students received their cheques yet?
  2. CGS is more prestigious and more lucrative (3*$35,000=$105,000 vs 4*$20,000=$80,000)
  3. Received (positive) news yesterday in Mississauga (I had SSHRC communications sent directly to my parents so I didn't have to wait for things to come all the way to the US of A; learned my lesson last year!) 20.7/30 Field: Education Studying in the US Wait listed twice, so third time's a charm!
  4. If you receive a letter, can you post where you're located?
  5. Winners posted: http://www.aauw.org/learn/fellows_directory/upload/fgaRecipients2011-12.pdf
  6. I'm in California. Although I had my full Canadian license, I had to re-do a driving test to get a California license. Bummer.
  7. Woohoo! Any idea how we will be notified? It seems, based on last year's forum, that the results were posted online on April 15th. Has anyone heard anything different?
  8. I don't think this can be right. In the past, acceptance and rejection letters have been sent out at the same time, and no one else has heard anything.
  9. I found my link in an old email - thanks for the heads up! However, while mine used to say "recommended", it now says "logged in" each time I check. Anyone else?
  10. About a week ago they changed the page that lets you check your status. Maybe applications are under review?
  11. Thank you! I hadn't seen the link If you search this forum, last year some people indicated that they stayed "recommended" on April 15th. Neither of them received the scholarship, so I was curious as to if/when everyone's status starting changing to "recommended and reviewed"
  12. Have either of you checked your online application? What does your status say?
  13. Last year I got a letter at the beginning of March, indicating that I'd made it to the second round of the competition. They will send a letter in March either way, so we'll all hear something soon.
  14. For what it's worth, I was able to negotiate with schools to not provide a response until I heard back from SSHRC.
  15. We definitely won't hear by the end of March. End of April is possible

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that they didn't consolidate the waitlist, for the reasons you listed above. Also, based on my experience last year, subcommittee alternate lists were never consolidated.

    Oops, accept, right. What we DON'T want them to do is decline

    Based on my understanding, this is not necessarily true. There are 5 types of selection committees for the SSHRC doctoral awards: http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/apply-demande/background-renseignements/doctoral_committees-comites_doctorat-eng.aspx. Within each of these categories, there are several smaller committees, made up of at least 1 faculty member from each of the disciplines. Thus, you could be waiting for someone in law, business, polisci, etc to decline a Vanier, and those 2 economics Vaniers could have been in other subcommittees than you.

    I love that she gets her own acronym. Do you think she knows she's an internet celebrity?

    Not at all. The business SSHRC funding was a one-time thing last year. Someone posted some links about this earlier. (And for the sake of argument, my project was about learning disabilities in young children and somehow got funded through this initiative)

    I think this may have been people who were waitlisted in the regular competition, and then were later awarded the special business SSHRCs. That's what happened to me, at least.

    I emailed yesterday and received a response this morning. It seems there has been no movement in my subgroup since the day I received my letter and spoke to someone at SSHRC. Surprising and unfortunate
