SSHRC CGS-M Masters 2020-2021Updates?


Recommended Posts

I received the following email today (as I'm sure all applicants did as well):

Funding Opportunity: Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s Program

La version française suit.

This is an automated email message. Please do not reply.

The status of your application has changed. As of April 1, consult the Application Overview page in the Research Portal to view the results.

 

Does anybody know if it is guaranteed we will see results on April 1st? And does receiving a result early mean anything, or does everyone find out at the same time?

 

Thanks!!

Here is the link to the SSHRC website and the changes they are making to dates/deadlines. It states that release date for CGS-Master's Program has been moved from April 1 until April 15th. It's near the bottom of the page, under tri-agency programs. Maybe the date change wasn't made on the automated message, but I would check April 1st just in case!

And yes, I'm pretty sure they release all of the results at the same time.

Yup SSHRC tweeted that they release CGS-M April 15th now, which includes CIHR and NSERC as well.

I applied for CGS-M as well, but I didn't receive this email. Did anyone else who applied received this email?

Is there a way of determining what number we are on the alternate list? I'm listed an an alternate at the University of Ottawa.

I don't think most schools tell you where you're at on the wait-list.  I would love to know!  Thankfully I applied for OGS too, so I am hoping that if I am alternate for SSHRC which is more competitive than OGS, I will get OGS for sure!

Yup! You can email the CGS-M coordinator of the school (e..g, UOttawa) you were listed as an Alternate.

Does anyone know when OGS results are released? I asked my future supervisor when I interviewed and he said he thought it was in June but he wasn't sure. Does it depend on the school?

I am pretty sure OGS should be any day now at most schools!

Can anyone (in Canada) who received SHHRC CGS-M confirm that this is *not* taxable income? Thank you!

I received CGS-M CIHR and it's considered your stipend/scholarship/awards, which was not taxed for me for 2019. :)

What is the alternate list? Is it like a waiting list? I thought they only tell you yes or no for your scholarship application. Thanks so much for your reply!

Alternate= waitlist.

You can email the CGS-M coordinator of the school (e..g, UOttawa) you were listed as an Alternate to determine your position on the waitlist/alternate list.

Thank you so much! 

Do you now what's the percentage of people in a program get this scholarship? I didn't ask my cohort since it's kind of personal, I guess.

Hi, you can't really determine that! Your essentially competing against other ppl in different programs. Ex: CIHR your competing against people in medicine and related, SSHRC against other humanities and social sciences, etc. I think once you meet your cohort it'll inevitably pop out eventually haha, when ya'll are lamenting about the funding :P

Hi,

 

Does anybody know when in exact the alternate master's SSHRC-CGS 2020-21 applicants will be notified if they have won the scholarship or not?

 

Thank you!

"Offers to alternate candidates may be made up until January 31 of the next calendar year." so up until Jan 2021. I was emailed when I was offered in June/July-ish.

I know it has been a year but I am wondering if you emailed uottawa to ask about your position on the waitlist. I got alternate too and I am scared to email and ask.

I encourage you to email them. I did when I was alternate and was told my position. Good luck!
