Call for Nominations: SSHRC Doctoral Awards



The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) provides financial support to outstanding eligible students pursuing master’s or doctoral studies in a Canadian university in social sciences or humanities.  The SSHRC website is now updated for the Fall 2013 SSHRC Doctoral Awards competition. The site includes a link to the online application form.

Important Changes  

  1. When calculating eligibility for funding, months of previous doctoral study will now be counted as of December 31 of the year of application (not as of the anticipated start date of the award)
  2. Students who are or will be registered in a (a) combined MA/PhD, (b) fast-track program (accelerated from a Master’s program into a doctoral program without obtaining the Master’s degree) or (c) direct-entry doctoral program may be eligible to apply to the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s Scholarship program (CGS M), provided that they have completed between zero and 12 months of graduate-level studies by December 31 of the year of application.


Deadline for applications to be submitted by students to their graduate program:  Monday, September 30, 2013 – Please note:  THIS IS A FIRM DEADLINE.  Incomplete applications received after this date will NOT BE CONSIDERED.  All supporting documentation (letters of references, transcripts, etc.), MUST be received by the LFS Graduate Office by this deadline.

Call for Nominations: CIHR Doctoral Research Awards and CIHR Fellowships


The application portal for CIHR Doctoral Research Awards and CIHR Fellowships is now open.  Applications for Doctoral Research Awards and for Fellowships are submitted directly to CIHR.  There is no university-level adjudication for these awards, though university signatures may be required for forms that are uploaded to the online application. For more information about signatures and internal UBC signature deadlines, please see the Office of Research Services website.
