Writing SSHRC Proposals for Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences (3 weeks)

September 13 @ 9:30 am 11:30 pm EDT

Program Partner: GCAC
GPS Credits: 2 in Research-Related Skills

This 3-week course is designed for students in the Humanities and Social Sciences who are applying for SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) Master’s Scholarships or Doctoral Awards. While several of the concepts examined will also be relevant to students applying for an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), and OGS applicants are welcome to register, the focus of the course is on writing an effective SSHRC proposal. (Check with your department regarding your eligibility to apply for funding through SSHRC and/or OGS.) The course will examine specific features of good and bad proposals and provide students the opportunity to see sections of winning SSHRC proposals and to submit their own draft proposals for feedback. Feedback will be available to course participants through written comments on students’ draft proposals and through individual consultations.

Course duration: 3 weeks.

Subject to attendance and work submission requirements, this course may be used for credit in the School of Graduate S​tudies’ Graduate Professional Skills program.​
