New harmonized deadline for all Tri-Agency Doctoral Scholarship applications (CIHR/NSERC/SSHRC)

Note that there is an important change happening for the CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC Doctoral scholarships application competitions this year.

  1. Students applying for the CIHR Doctoral will now submit their application through their institution, instead of applying directly to CIHR
  2. Universities must submit their students’ applications for all three agency (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) doctoral scholarships by one harmonized deadline:  November 21, 2019

Because of the new harmonized deadline date, our own internal deadlines have to change, as follows:

  • Deadline for University of Windsor students to complete and submit their application on each agency-specific portal:  Monday, September 16, 2019 (departments are free to set an earlier deadline if they wish)
  • Deadline for receipt of ranked lists of applications in our office (FGS) from the graduate programs for CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC doctoral scholarships:  Friday, October 4, 2019 by noon

All of the information and access to each agency portal can be found at:

We don’t yet have the full details on the submission and review process, but as soon as we have more information to share it will be posted.
