Scholarship and Grant Writing Advice
SSHRC Scholarship Proposal Tips
Over the last couple years, I put together a list of advice for graduate students applying for a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) scholarship or grant. SSHRC proposals have a different set of norms and requirements than many other grants and scholarships, but I expect that many of these tips will also be helpful for other types of applications. I applied for a SSHRC scholarship four times before I was successful, and over the course of that time I took workshops, participated in writing groups, and had many conversations with peers and mentors on how to write a SSHRC proposal. I have combined much of the advice I picked up along the way and combined it with approaches that worked for me personally. I consider this a living document, so if you see any egregious omissions or shortcomings, do not hesitate to contact me. I hope these tips can make the process less painful for other applicants.
