Twenty-three McGill doctoral researchers receive SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships

Recipients will pursue research in areas of critical social importance that promote equity, diversity and inclusion
“Social sciences and humanities are helping Canadians navigate complex societal issues; informing sound decision-making across government, business and community sectors; creating jobs; and securing a better future for our country and our kids,” said Navdeep Bains, federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.

Twenty-three McGill doctoral researchers have won Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grants to study such topics as gender-based violence, low graduation rates in Quebec, language instruction for immigrants, sustainable architecture, and musical education for children with autism.

They were among 540 doctoral researchers across Canada to be awarded funding through the SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships competition. The Government of Canada’s investment in doctoral social sciences and humanities research talent totals $26 million over the next four years. The McGill cohort will receive total funding of more than $1.3 million.

“Our government has always believed that the best investments are based on quality data and research. Social sciences and humanities are helping Canadians navigate complex societal issues; informing sound decision-making across government, business and community sectors; creating jobs; and securing a better future for our country and our kids,” said The Hon. Navdeep Bains, federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry in the announcement on November 2. “I want to congratulate this year’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Doctoral Fellowship recipients, and look forward to the transformative work they will do.”
