As a new SSHRC scholar you must:
The Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) offers two streams of awards through one application: the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarships-Doctoral (CGS D) and the SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships.
The SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships and Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) Doctoral Scholarships aim to develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities.
These funding opportunities help train Canada’s researchers and leaders of tomorrow.
Some Canada Graduate Scholarship recipients may be considered for the honour of having their scholarship named a “Canada Graduate Scholarship to Honour Nelson Mandela,” should SSHRC deem their application to be aligned with at least one of five themes championed by Mandela: national unity; democracy; freedom and human rights; leadership; children’s participation in society; and children’s health.
The CGS D is offered to the top-ranked applicants and the next tier of meritorious applicants are offered the Fellowship.
Beginning September 1, 2016, Western University will launch the Doctoral Excellence Research Awards.
The Doctoral Excellence Research Awards represent a new investment in graduate student support, in addition to the funding already invested by the University and Faculties in this area. The awards recognize outstanding academic achievement to nurture the potential of our best and brightest scholars.
A new doctoral student, who is also a new Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship-Doctoral (CGS D) or SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship recipient, will receive $15,000 during their first year, and an additional $10,000 for each subsequent year of the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship-Doctoral (CGS D) or SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship.
A continuing doctoral student, who is a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship-Doctoral (CGS D) or SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship recipient, will receive an additional $10,000 for each remaining year of their Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship-Doctoral (CGS D) or SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship.
Western’s new Doctoral Excellence Research Awards represent an additional investment of approximately $2 million annually, underlining our overall commitment to supporting Canada’s future leaders.
