This year, eight of our PhD students received fellowships from SSHRC. Four received Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarships Program—Doctoral Scholarships and the other four received SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships. This funding will provide them with support for one to four years.
Although all students in the University of Toronto graduate programs have a guaranteed funding package, receiving a SSHRC fellowship provides additional funding and allows them reduce the number of hours devoted to teaching and research assistantships so that they can focus on their dissertation research. All of our PhD students apply for external funding and receive training in developing proposals.
