Congratulations to Five PhD Students Receiving SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships

Five PhD students received SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships this year. The SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships support high-calibre students engaged in doctoral programs in the social sciences and humanities. This support allows scholars to fully focus on their doctoral studies, to seek out the best research mentors in their chosen fields, and to contribute to the Canadian research ecosystem during and beyond the tenure of their awards.
