SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship/CGS Doctoral Scholarship 2017/2018


Recommended Posts

If they say "this week" today, I'm skeptical it's happening today... /sigh

My friend's prof is on one of the committees and said that the decisions are already made, they met almost a month ago to discuss them, apparently.

Vancouver: thin envelope arrived this afternoon.  Time for an overhaul.  (Thinking of all the learning since I applied last Fall - I'm going to put it to work!) A warm (well, rainy) thanks to all

Right now, I am trying hard to focus on all of the reasons that it will be okay if I fail in this competition. I'm in Georgia (direct applicant), so it might be a few days before I know the results.

Emailed SSHRC -- results won't be sent till mid to end April

For the last few years SSHRC has announced on twitter when the letters had been sent out.  An applicant this year pointed this out, and SSHRC "liked" the tweet.  See also LAST YEAR's mail-out announcement tweet.  Setting a push notification for @sshrc_crsh might be an idea.

 

Although this is true, it seems as though people started finding out last year by April 22 either through mail or by being notified by their department. I just checked with my department again and they have yet to receive word so I do think it's a bit delayed this year.

lol i am dying. this is almost as painful as waiting to hear back from grad school

Seriously. All the people I've told at my US school have been incredulous that results are by snail mail... seems intentionally torturous.

For what it's worth, I don't think the schools have been informed either (by email).  I contacted the awards officer yesterday, and she said she has not heard yet. More waiting.

That's odd...usually the schools are informed before the letters go out. I really hope that SSHRC just resorts to emailing the results given the time crunch!

That's ridiculous! They should just send out emails!!

Or even email you to tell you to login to view results like, oh I don't know, every university in North America.

The deadline for me to accept OGS (a mutually exclusive scholarship) is on Monday. This late SSHRC business is super annoying!

O shit -- Surely the SSHRC people know of this. Maybe the letters will actually go out before Friday (somewhere in this thread someone said something about receiving the letter before the tweet). In any case, hope it all works out for you!

Maybe it depends of the university but at OttawaU, You can accept OGS and then cancel it if you got SSHRC. You should ask your school if it's a possibility.

omg. tomorrow. can we just email them and ask when they send out the notice that the slow mail's out?

seems like they always mail them out on Fridays, likely to avoid replying to emails until Monday. :P
