The SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships (SSHRC Doctoral) and SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarships - Doctoral (SSHRC CGS-D) programs aim to develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities.
What are the differences between the SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships and the SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarships - Doctoral?
The SSHRC Doctoral Awards are 1-4 years in duration and a value of $20,000 per year. The SSHRC CGS-D awards are 3 years duration with a value of $35,000 per year for the three years. Also, both awards have different requirements regarding your time in your doctoral program (see below).
