One candidate (in exceptional circumstances, two) will be asked to go forward, and willl be given further timelines relevant to the full application. Because of the highly competitive nature of the Banting, the FSS Committee may elect not to send any applicant forward. There is no selection process at the University-level (SGPS). Once selected to be a candidate from the Faculty of Social Science, SGPS will work closely with the supervisor and candidate to put together the best application possible.
|August 29, 2016||
The Faculty will provide a (max one page) draft “Letter of Endorsement”.
The August deadline is to ensure a first draft of everything may be reviewed by SGPS prior to the official submission deadline in September.
