UPCOMING COURSE FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS IN THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

School of Graduate Studies / ELWS course offering (non-credit):

WRITING SSHRC PROPOSALS

The pursuit of research grants is an key (and often required) part of a graduate student’s career, and the SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) program is one of the most important sources for graduate funding. This 3-week course is open to students in the Humanities and Social Sciences who are applying for SSHRC Master’s and Doctoral Fellowships.  The course will provide students with strategies to maximise the impact of their proposal, as well as the opportunity to examine specific features of good and bad proposals and to see sections of winning SSHRC proposals. Course participants will submit their own draft proposals for personalized feedback that will be available through written comments and individual consultations. Only students who are eligible to apply for SSHRC Scholarships (i.e. Canadian citizens and permanent residents) may enroll in this course.

This free three-week non-credit course runs Tuesdays from 3:00 to 5:00 – May 17th to May 31st

Course Instructor: Dr. Jane Freeman
