The SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships and Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) Doctoral Scholarships aim to develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of scholarly achievement in undergraduate and graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities. Applicants apply for both awards by completing one application form. If you are eligible for both awards, SSHRC will automatically consider you for both.

Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarships are valued at $35,000 per year for 36 months. SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships are valued at $20,000 per year for 12, 24, 36 or 48 months. SSHRC determines the value and duration of an award based on the number of months of full-time study (or equivalent) the applicant will have completed by December 31 of the year of application.

To qualify to apply to the fellowships, you must be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, be applying for support to pursue your first PhD (or equivalent), and be pursuing doctoral studies in the social sciences or humanities.
