There is currently a petition before the House of Commons to increase the number and value of Tri-Council Scholarships. These scholarships are tremendously important to graduate students and include SSHRC funding at both the masters and doctoral level (CGS-M and CGS-D). These scholarships have not increased monetarily in nearly two decades and with our current levels of inflation, are more important than ever.
