Hello Canadian fellows!

It's wonderful to see a thread for SSHRC application. 

I have a quick question: I've already applied for SSHRC doctoral awards and I also need to apply for OGS for the same 2019-2020 competition. I wonder whether I can use the same proposal?

 

Thanks! 

Hello, I have also applied to OGS. I've used the same proposal, but for my uni, the OGS form gave less space to describe my research project.

Thank you, yes, I need to shorten my SSHRC proposal as well. I think it makes more sense to use the same proposal...

Any direct applicants hear back? I'm a direct applicant studying in the UK. Any mail that comes should be going to my parents' (my permanent) address in Canada - still haven't received anything.

I would email them just to be sure and explain that you're in the UK and applied directly from outside the country

Direct applicant here! Haven't heard back yet either. You can have SSHRC deliver their mail to your address in England, just email them.

I think I'll wait for now... let's see...

Actually, I want it to be sent to my parents' house in Canada - my mailbox situation here isn't great and things always get sent to other homes. Just was wondering if any news would've come by now since the address is in Canada as opposed to abroad... but if you haven't heard anything either, guess we'll just have to keep waiting!

I've always altered my OGS proposal from the SSHRC quite a bit for it to fit (and still contain all of the necessary information) within their format!

Can you get OGS multiple times ?

Yes! Someone is welcome to correct me if I'm totally mistaken! I've never applied to OGS as a PhD student, just masters, but I believe the process is the same.

I was waitlisted last year. And the letter informing me that my application was forwarded to the final competition arrived about mid-February. The wait is infernal.

I know. It’s infernal. I am waiting for FRQSC, OGS, Vanier, Trudeau and SSHRC. It’s so long to wait like 8 months for an answer.

Direct applicant as well, got my letter in NYC today. Forwarded to the national competition!

It says a maximum of 236 applications our 521 could be forwarded.

Here's to another two months of waiting! 🍻

Does anyone know how many people will get it this year? I also read in my letter that a max. of 236 out of 521 could be forwarded to the national competition. When I looked at statistics from the last two years 430 people were given the award per year. Either they have severely reduced the number of awards they are giving this year, or I am misinterpreting something.

There are two streams for applications to be considered: direct entry or from a nominating university in Canada. I am guessing the number of 236 is the number of direct entry applicants not screened out at the first stage but rather sent for consideration with those who met the short-list from their own university?

I agree that it’s probably the number of direct applicants (vs. those applying through a university). My institution alone forwarded has a quota of 50 to forward to the national competition (not even a major university), so there’s no way 236 is the total amount.

That makes sense! This number is probably referring to either the number of direct applicants (as you suggested) or the number of people being forwarded from the specific selection committee I applied to.
