Learn to speak about your research with confidence!
Whether you are giving a conference presentation, a job talk, or defending your dissertation, as a graduate student you need to be able to speak with authority and knowledge about your research area, respond to questions, and engage in scholarly debate.
Speak like a Scholar is designed to help doctoral students develop their voices as independent scholars and give effective academic presentations with confidence.
Waterloo faculty members (both emerging and established scholars) are invited to learn about tools and strategies to help improve the success of a SSHRC grant application by attending some or all of these workshops. Hosted by the Office of Research, these SSHRC Tools and Resources Training (START) workshops will cover the most challenging sections of a typical SSHRC grant application.
78% of 2018 START attendees who applied for the SSHRC Insight Grant were successful. This is 34% higher than the national success rate.
