Faculty of Graduate Studies March/April Deadlines and Upcoming Events

Mon. Mar. 9, 2015

The Faculty of Graduate Studies would like to remind you about a number of deadlines and events coming up in March and April.

March 12 – Please contact Deanna at d.england@uwinnipeg.ca  to indicate your interest in the CAGS/SSHRC Graduate Student Panel Opportunity. The Canadian Association of Graduate Studies (CAGS) is engaging universities across Canada in a dialogue looking at the question of what role graduate research has to play in Canada’s future. Highlights of this dialogue will be incorporated into a report which CAGS will submit to SSHRC’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative and used as a resource for decision-makers as they determine which research they will support. 

Based on the recent attention given to Winnipeg following the launch of the Canadian Museum of Human Rights; the Maclean’s article highlighting the challenges of the Indigenous population in our city as well as the proposal of our Student Association on a mandatory indigenous course requirement, we feel we are well placed to address the following question: How are the experiences and aspirations of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada essential to building a successful shared future?

The Faculty of Graduate Studies would like to invite 6 -10 graduate students to participate on a panel discussion and lunch on April 16, 9:00 – 1:00 PM and we are also looking for one note-taker to work with the Faculty of Graduate Studies to compile a report and participate in conferences resulting from this panel.  These conferences include: a Roundtable at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Ottawa on June 1, 2015 and possibly the CAGS conference in Calgary, October 30 – November 2, 2015.

This note-taker will be compensated at $25.00/hr for this project and all travel expenses will be covered. The final report will be due approximately 2 weeks after the panel (the week of May 1, 2015).

CAGS /SSHRC are looking for prominent representation from the social sciences and humanities and it is necessary that the note taker have a SSHRC connection (i.e. from a SSHRC-related discipline). But diverse backgrounds and perspectives make for the best conversations.

March 15 – Deadline to apply for the Graduate Student Travel Grant Application. More information may be found here: http://www.uwinnipeg.ca/graduate-studies/scholarships-and-awards/internal-awards.html

April 1 – Application deadlines for the University of Winnipeg Graduate Studies Scholarship (UWGSS) and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship Program (QEII). More information can be found here: http://www.uwinnipeg.ca/graduate-studies/scholarships-and-awards/internal-awards.html
