28 Vanier Canadian Graduate Scholarship Grant Application Tips & Tricks September 18, 2013 Kristina Bradley

29 The Basics Eligible if studying/planning to do a doctoral degree at a Canadian university – Citizens, permanent residents, & international students Value: $ per year X 3 years Aims to attract leaders in research to Canadian Universities

30 The Basics – Part 2 Must be nominated by Canadian University CANNOT have other federal doctoral funding (CIHR, SSHRC, NSERC) Between month and 20 of studies Must apply through CIHR, SSHRC, or NSERC… – Based on mandate Criteria for selection: Academic excellence, research potential, and leadership

31 Review Process Get nominated by University that you are applying to to get doctorate – uOttawa deadline: October 3, 2013 Program deadline for applications from universities – November 6, 2013 Announcements usually around April

32 The Nuts and Bolts: Common CV Same as CIHR Common CV, regardless of which agency you are applying through Find the template on ResearchNet Components: – Common CV form – You supplementary forms (e.g., research contributions) – Your proposed (or current) supervisors Common CV docs

33 Nuts and Bolts: Research Summary TIP: Always put unimportant stuff in very small print (my references are like size 8 font) – Use footnotes instead of APA 2 pages including references Spend more of your time writing about research methods and strengths of your supervisor-supervisee relationship and program to get it done – Everyone puts too much lit review.. No one cares! – Put measures you would use, statistical analysis plan, apparati… even if it’s made up – Describe hypotheses – BOTTOM LINE: demonstrate that you are a great researcher

34 Nuts and Bolts: Leadership They are looking for leaders for this scholarship. Good grades are not enough Examples of leadership experience: teaching, involvement in student government (e.g., GASP ;)), volunteerism and project management at work (but you need a leadership role), civic engagement Find your inner narcissist…

35 Description of Leadership 1 page to describe how you are awesome The role of leadership in your research – Mentoring experiences in research Leadership in organizations Volunteering and/or how you contribute to your community (school, work, general…) List awards/distinctions you’ve received related to leadership or times when you were chosen for something based on your leadership skills How you hope to develop your leadership skills in the future

36 Reference Letters Much greater weight Find someone who is warm and fuzzy – Those who aren’t will be asked by the selection committee to rewrite it Create a sheet listing your accomplishments in leadership – Your supervisor likely doesn’t know you’re on GASP or whatever

37 Ontario Graduate Scholarship Grant Application Tips & Tricks September 18, 2013 Kristina Bradley

38 The Basics Must be studying at/applying to Ontario university graduate program – 8 international student awards NEW: MUST apply to school you plan to attend for your doctoral studies Can apply for masters or PhD level $ for one year Due at uOttawa November 1, 2013 Announcements by April 30, 2014

39 What You Need Application form (4 pages) Notice, Consents.. (1 page) Research Statement (1 page) Application Checklist (1 page) Official university transcripts (all) 2 Academic Assessment Reports (i.e., reference letters; 2 pages each)

40 What You Need – Part 2 List of Awards and Prizes (application form) Research Contributions (1 page) List of Significant Academic Accomplishments (1 page) N.B.: Most of this is in your student CV that you fill out for the annual evaluation if you are already a uOttawa grad student

41 Research Statement EVEN shorter… so be concise! Same advice as for Vanier really – TIP: Always put unimportant stuff in very small print (like references… though I just have citations in my app) Use footnotes instead of APA Spend more of your time writing about research methods Everyone puts too much lit review.. No one cares! – Put measures you would use, statistical analysis plan, apparati… even if it’s made up – Describe hypotheses – BOTTOM LINE: demonstrate that you are a great researcher

42 General Remarks Get people who are good at this to read over your stuff – GET FEEDBACK FROM SUPERVISOR!! – Good editors – Laymen – OGS committee not psychologists – Grad students who were successful in the past Get winning applications and steal their style.. Don’t reinvent the wheel! – That’s how I did it – me at

43 SSHRC Social, development, personality, and etc. – NOT health related Master’s – $17,500 – Eligible for some first year students – Due date Dec 1 st PhD – $35,000 X 3 years OR $20,000 X up to 4 years – Due date TBA (last year Nov 15 th )
