Writing SSHRC Proposals (for students in the Humanities and Social Sciences) (4 weeks)

May 25 @ 3:00 pm 4:15 pm UTC

Duration: 4 weeks from May 25 to June 15

GPS Credit: 1.66 in Research-Related Skills

This 4-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. The course will examine topics such as the format and evaluation criteria for SSHRC proposals, strategies for clarifying the content, structure, and style of proposals, and common errors to avoid. In this time of social distancing, we are experimenting with a new format for the course. The course will consist of four weekly one-hour plenary sessions online, supplemented by smaller group tutorial sessions and the opportunity for students to submit draft proposals for feedback.

Course duration: 4 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.​
