Both the OGS & SSHRC deadlines are the same for the 2010-2011 competitions. Aplications for either competition must land on my desk no later than October 16, 2009.

Please ignore any other deadlines you see in FGS, other programmes, or on the competition's webpages. All programmes set their own deadlines based on how many applications are received and thus have to be ranked. Just think one thought......OCTOBER 16, 2009

If you want your proposal reviewed by the scholarships committee ahead of time for feedback (strongly suggested), then please send it to me, by email, no later than September 30. But earlier is welcome - the earlier you get feedback, the more time you have to fine-tune!
