SSHRC — change regarding eligibility criteria

with regards to these criteria. Applicants must still be affiliated
with a Canadian postsecondary institution, unless the eligibility
criteria of the program to which they are applying states
otherwise. Please note that all training programs such as
the master’s, the doctoral and the postdoctoral fellowships
do not fall under this amendment.
