Two award opportunities

SSHRC Impact Awards

Consider nominating an Anthropology student for the SSHRC Impact
Talent Awards. The five annual SSHRC Impact Awards (Gold Medal, Talent
Award, Insight Award, Connection Award and Partnership Award)
recognize the highest achievements in social sciences and humanities
research, knowledge mobilization and scholarship supported by SSHRC.
The SSHRC Talent Award recognizes outstanding achievement by an
individual who, at the nomination deadline, holds a SSHRC doctoral or
postdoctoral fellowship or scholarship (including, but not limited to,
a Canada Graduate Scholarship, Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship or
Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship). SSHRC offers one award in each
category annually. Institutions may submit only one nomination for
each of the five impact awards in a given year.
