This page is for tracking SSHRC awards to be held during the 2019-2020 academic year.


SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowships are expected to respond to the objectives of the Talent program.

These 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.

They 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 grant competitions.

Fellowships will normally be awarded to candidates affiliated with a university other than the one that awarded the PhD. SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship awards are tenable at Canadian or foreign universities and research institutions.

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

Value: $45,000 per year

    • Congrats! I was wondering what were your scores last year, did you get a similar one for capability (qualifications)? I mean was the program of work the only issue last year?
    • Someone deleted my question - Rank was 1 out of how many? I'm trying to see how many apps were for committee 4.

05-Feb-2019: Am I being an absolute idiot, or was the announcement made a few days ago about this competition, or last year's?

  • This appears to be a list of the 2018-19 recipients. Weird that they would post this list right at the time that we are all waiting for the results from this year's competition.

12-Feb-2019: Emailed SSHRC about results and was told that mail-out would occur towards the end of February. So I think the mailbox stakeout will occur during the first week of March :)

  • Thank you very much for letting us know!

14-Feb-2019: For those like me who can't help obsessing over the day the results will be mailed, SSHRC twitts about that in the last six years:

25-Feb-2019: Someone just posted on another forum that they emailed SSHRC directly, who replied that acceptances would be sent out the beginning of March

1-March-2019: Still no tweet, I'm assuming the letters won't be mailed until Monday at the absolute earliest... what a drag. 

UPDATE: The announcement of the #SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship results has been postponed to March 8. #sshrcpostdoc

4-March-2019: Does "announcement of the #SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship results" mean they're switching to e-mail announcements or that they are putting letters in the mail on that day. Why would you ever put something in the mail on a Friday?!

  • Some people asked for some clarification on Twitter but SSHRC didn't respond. E-mailing over 800 people would be a heavy burden for them considering they are already behind their schedule. I wish they just announce the list of fellowship offered applications. It shouldn't be an issue because they reveal this kind of a list every year anyway.
  • Personally I would be absoultely shocked if they decided to announce it in a different way at the last minute!
  • I just sent an email to ask them how the results will be communicated. I'll post the answer if I get one. Waiting until mid-March for the results would be pretty rough (which is what I am anticipating). [UPDATE: They are mailing them.]

 •Mailing on a Friday..... how ridiculous (and not to mention torturous!). Looks as if we are all going to be waiting aweek more, at the very least [UPDATE: When I received my SSHRC doctoral, my department head already had the news and "unofficially" told me before I received the official notice. I'm wondering if in this instance departments might know before we receive the hardcopies?] 

5-March-2019: Interesting... Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

  • There is a statement on the web page of SSHRC for doctoral award, it says " Faculties of graduate studies at postsecondary institutions with a quota will be informed of their applicants’ competition results via SSHRC’s secure site". I guess this only applies to doctoral award.
  • Yes that applies to doctoral awards. From what I remember, when I was doing my PhD this occurred in my department - I received a SSHRC doctoral fellowship and there were several others over the years that I was there.
  • Somebody on Twitter (1:42 pm) : "I emailed SSHRC directly and they said "The results for the Postdoctoral competition will be mailed this afternoon."" UPDATE : message erased
  • I have two friends in Ottawa who have heard back from SSHRC and both were rejected...not sure why some people have heard and some haven't but it appears that some results were mailed out.
    Capture d’écran, le 2019-03-05 à 13.58
  • That was my Tweet! I didn't mean to erase it - It's true :) I emailed them today and they said they were sending letters our by mail this afternoon. So depending on where you are in Canada, your letter should arrive in 1-4 business days!
  • I'm confused why they would say March 8th on twitter and then quietly email only *some* of the letters before then?? That doesn't make much sense. If they emailed them yesterday why wouldn't they tweet that?
    • I mean, to be fair, pretty much nothing SSHRC has done over the past month has made sense... I wonder if the person whose friends already heard maybe applied to the doctoral as opposed to postdoctoral? It looks like some direct applicants for SSHRC doctoral received letters in the last few weeks.
    • That's exactly what I was thinking; these friends could have been finding out if they are going to the national competition for SSHRC doctoral awards. SSHRC has stated repeatedly that they send out all of the letters at once. To get through this especially lengthy wait, I keep telling myself that the delay is because SSHRC got more money and that the acceptance rate will hopefully be higher this year :) 
      • I've been saying the same thing! I'm not sure when they found out about the extra money, but if it was after the decisions were made, I imagine it could be a pretty lengthy process figuring out new cutoff marks. Either way, the end is in sight!
        • Unless they already mailed them and are announcing the results publically on March 8???
  • If they mailed the letters yesterday, I don't understand why SSHRC doesn't tweet about it as always. I literally live on SSHRC's tweeter page this week.
  • Jesus christ, you guys. They didn't send out "some letters but not others." SSHRC is mailing letters from Ottawa. It's faster for a letter to get delivered from Ottawa to Ottawa than from Ottawa to Edmonton or Vancouver.
  • Yup - Was going to say above! Everything gets sent out at the same time. Two people have confirmed, SSHRC sent out postdoc announcements by mail (not by email...ever) on March 5th. Now, it's just waiting until the mail is delivered. But the announcements are out for everyone.

March 7, 2019: I emailed SSHRC and here's their response:

"The postdoctoral results were mailed on March 5, 2019."

Guess we should receive the letter soon. 

  • It's odd that a letter posted on March 5th hasn't yet reached my address down the street from SSHRC. My postie's already been by today so I hope that it reaches tomorrow. If anybody else living in Ottawa has received their letters, would love to know. And thanks everybody for the good company, even if only in misery, that you provide in this forum.
    • My guess is that "Mailed March 5th" probably means "put in the mail," and maybe delivered to a mailroom, but thus probably not actually posted/picked up until March 6th.... ? Still, it is odd that ppl in Ottawa haven't yet received them today.
  • March 7- Someone tweeted as he didn't get SSHRC postdoc which means he received his letter
    • I did some sleuthing and it looks like he's in Montreal? Which could mean results have gotten out of province already?
    • I live in Montreal like this guy. Nothing in my mailbox... 
      • I'm in Montreal and my big ol rejection arrived today. 
  • So then what does SSHRC's tweet (linked above) about results on March 8th mean? 
    • Probably that they anticipated not being able to send them out until the 8th, but then they were able to do it sooner than they thought. That's the Occam's Razor explanation, anyway.
    • It also could mean that the majority of applicants in Canada will receive them by March 8th, which seems at least somewhat likely given the mail date.

7-March-2019: FYI, someone posted in another forum that the success rate is 19.2% for this year. I'm happy to hear that it has gone up from 17.7% of last year!  [source:]

8-March-2019: Received a letter from SSHRC in Montreal. Best of luck to everyone! - March 8th, at night, in Montreal, still haven't recieved a letter, I'm super frustrated that I won't know until at least Mondary, blarg!

  • Received rejection this morning in Calgary, so the letters have made it West, folks! Good luck to all!

I am in Ontario, but no mail so far. Have the mails delivered to your school or home? 

  • I received my letter at my home (Edmonton) on 8 March, but my friend in Edmonton has not received his letter as of 11th March.
  • Thanks for sharing! I checked my mailbox at school and home (Toronto) but none there! When we were filling out the form, I did not fill out the correspondence address as it said "Complete this section only if you wish your correspondence to be sent to an address other than that of your current position." Everything right not makes me nervous. Let's hope people in Ontario get the mail on Monday. 
  • Shoot! I'm also in Toronto and haven't received a letter, and just went to check what I filled out for address. I filled out both 'current address' (my university outside of Canada) and 'correspondence address' (current address in Toronto). Now I'm worried my mail may have gone to my mailbox on campus, when I'm away this entire semester. Has anyone else in Toronto gotten their letter?
  • ^ I applied (unsuccesfully) for the SSHRC post-doc last year, and had only the 'current address' for the institution where I would have carried out my research as well my 'permanent' (home) address entered in my online CV, but my 'correspondence address' was left blank. My notice was delivered to my permanent/home address. This year I have the same information entered (albeit at a different institution) and haven't received word yet. I'll be checking with the university on Monday as well as my own mailbox.
  • Based on everyone's posts, it doesnt seem like Toronto letters have been received by anyone yet... But hopefully today (March 11!) is the day...any one received in Toronto??
  • 11-March (2:30pm) No mail (not even fliers) has been deliverd to Toronto address (permenant address & school). Let's keep things updated!
  • Got my letter at home in Toronto (March 11th)

9-March-2019: Manitoba here, no mail arrived yesterday so the wait continues. I really wish they could just do this online. Good luck everyone.

9-March-2019: I've updated the Stats heading above with the stats I received in my letter. It would be great if everyone who has received their letters could do the same! (It would certainly cut down on questions under each individual post). The overall success rate for the competition was actually 19.4%, not 19.2%.

March 9 2019: I received an email yesterday (Mar 8) with my NOD attached in PDF. They said they mailed out my hard copy on Mar 5, but they realized after it was sent that they made a mistake. So the email says I should disregard the decision stated in the letter. I haven’t received the letter in the mail yet, but the PDF says I was not successful. I presume this means I will receive a letter next week that says I was successful. This seems very strange to me. Anyone else have a similar email notification?

  • This is so strange - how would they even realize they had made a mistake? Have you received the letter yet?
  • This is the stuff nightmares are made of. Please do update us about the contents of the mailed letter, once you receive it!

March 11 2019: FYI, for those who are doing PhDs in the U.S., I just got my results in the mail today (successful). I'm on the West Coast, so good job international mail system. 

11-March: Anyone in Toronto (or anywhere in Ontario) received letter? So strange that the mail arrived in the states but not here in Toronto...

12-March: I know of two friends in the Toronto area who received their letters yesterday. I'm still waiting on mine, however...

13-March: Haven't opened my letter yet because I'm out of town until tomorrow, but I can confirm they've made it all the way west. Mine has arrived in Vancouver as of yesterday (the 12th).

13-March: I am in Toronto and my letter still has not arrived (today's mail was already delivered, and still no letter). Zero cheers for Canada Post.

13-March: Still waiting for my letter in Winnipeg. SSHRC, if you're reading this, it would be really helpful if you could implement email notifications, or secure messages on your own site! It makes zero sense to me that letter mail is the optimal solution here.

13- March: Also, downtown Toronto and no letter in the mail. I checked my faculty mailbox as well. This is brutal.

14- March: Received letter in Waterloo, Ontario today. FINALLY

16-March: Another week gone by and *still* nothing in the mail.

16-March: I'm in Ottawa and I still haven't received my letter. I emailed them a few days ago and they said that I have to wait 2 weeks from the delivery day, and then I can contact them. So basically, if no mails comes by this Tuesday (which I 100% anticipate), we can email them and I imagine they will email us the results.

18-March: Still have not received mail here in Winnipeg so I emailed SSHRC this morning. They responded by emailing a secure pdf with my results. I suggest anyone still waiting do the same. Although I got an autoresponse that it might take 4 days for them to reply, they actually replied within about 2-3 hours.
