This workshop is intended for current or future students in research-based graduate programs, who are preparing a Fall scholarship application to a federal or provincial government research agency.

There are many elements that need to be compiled before a complete scholarship application can be submitted. While many statements are written by the applicant, time is also required for 1) peer-review of those statements, 2) ordering official transcripts, 3) letters of support, and so on. The aim of this workshop is to present possible timelines that will help to anticipate the needs of most tri-agency and FRQ applications - due in the coming weeks and months.

Note: Students are ultimately still responsible for ensuring their own applications conform to the instructions and standards laid out on by each agency for the specific funding program(s) they select.

Learning Objectives
After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Plan and anticipate the timeline(s) for applications for the tri-agency and FRQ scholarship opportunities.
• Ensure that all elements (e.g. drafting and revision of statements, ordering transcripts, letters of support) are complete before the relevant deadline(s).
• Start developing their own scholarship application(s) for SSHRC/FRQSC.
