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.

Fellowships will normally be awarded to candidates affiliated with a university other than that which awarded the PhD.

SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship awards are tenable at Canadian or foreign universities and research institutions.

SSHRC welcomes applications involving Aboriginal research, as well as those involving research-creation.

Value: $40,500 per year

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.
