This page is for tracking SSHRC awards to be held during the 2017-2018 academic year.
SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowships support the most promising Canadian new scholars in the social sciences and humanities and assist them in establishing a research base at an important time in their research careers.
SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowships provide stipendiary support to recent PhD graduates who are: undertaking original research; publishing research findings; developing and expanding personal research networks; broadening their teaching experience; preparing for research-intensive careers within and beyond academia; and preparing to become competitive in national research grants competitions.

DISCUSSION / Q&A Edit
Jan 2017 - Anyone else counting down the days? Can't wait to check my mailbox twice a day throughout Feb!
- - Oh yes! Can't wait. Pretty nerve wracking.
- - Jan 21st - I can relate, no clue what I am doing if I don't get this.
- -23 Jan - Nor me. Put too much stock in this, currently trying to rebalance my expectations and I'm applying for other jobs and postdocs now too, it helos with the anxiety.
