The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) is the federal research funding agency that promotes and supports research and training in the humanities and social sciences. For more information and to apply, visit the SSHRC website.
An Ontario Graduate Scholarship is valued at up to $15,000 for one year ($5,000 per term for up to three terms) and is jointly awarded by the Province and Carleton University. The Province pays two-thirds of the cost (i.e. up to $10,000 over 3 terms) and Carleton pays one-third (i.e. up to $5,000 over 3 terms). OGS is different from other prestigious external awards such as SSHRC and NSERC since it requires a matching contribution from the University. Note that, If you are in receipt of OGS, FGPA will report this to the Ministry (OSAP) on your behalf. For more information and to apply, please visit the OGS Carleton website.
Donor-funded awards are financial awards valued from several hundred dollars to a maximum of $20,000 and are provided by an individual or organization to Carleton. They are administered by Carleton and are awarded based on academic merit, financial need and/or specific research areas. You need to apply online through Carleton Central. It is in your best interest to check with your department to see what awards are available and if any of these awards pertain to you. The selection methods within individual departments will vary. Unless stated otherwise, you must be registered full-time in the term in which the award is to be held in order to be eligible. For more information on donor-funded awards and other available awards, please visit the Carleton Internal Awards website.
