School of Graduate Studies: Writing SSHRC Proposals Course

The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) is offering two upcoming sections of this three-week course designed for graduate 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 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 (Mondays, September 19 – October 3 or Thursdays, September 29 – October 13)
