    "Does your husband know about this?"

    Got the letter from SSHRC this afternoon. Pleased to report that I've been offered a CGS!!! Wooohoooooo!! $35,000/year for 3 years. Super happy! Some of my stats:
     
    3rd time applying for a Ph.D. SSHRC;
    2nd year in the Ph.D. programme, going into 3rd;
    M.A. and Ph.D. GPA: just above A;
    4 single author publications, mainly in grad student journals;
    10 or so presentations, some at professional conferences, some at grad student conferences.
    5 or 6 RA-ships; 3-4 TA-ships;
    A ton of awards, including OGS and MA SSHRC.
    Strong letters of support from supervisor and from another department member, both emerging and internationally-recognized experts in the field I am proposing to study;
    SSHRC Program of Study: over 20 drafts, circulated to at least 12 members of my dept and fellow students.
     
    Thanks for all the support and for sticking together! Congrats to all those received the awards, and good vibes to those still waiting, and also good luck reapplying to those who have not received a SSHRC.

    I bet they're all laughing at us at the annual conference of external fellowship and graduate award coordinators (ACEFGAC).

    Every time twitter bings at me with a SSHRC tweet, I get anxious. The word "storyteller" will be forever in my nightmares.

    I have a 20 page paper to write by Friday, along with tons of cleaning and packing to do, but all I can do is hit refresh every 2 minutes.  You could say I'm "SSHRC"-ing my responsibilities!

    I had a dream last night that I won CGS.  In Caliban's words,
     
    "and then, in dreaming,
    The clouds methought would open, and show riches
    Ready to drop upon me; that, when I waked,
    I cried to dream again.”
