Graduate Scholarship Description
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is a national funding organization that invests in Canada's capability in science and technology in the natural sciences and in engineering. NSERC offers Postgraduate Scholarships (PGS) which provide financial support to high-calibre scholars who are engaged in Master's or Doctoral programs in the natural sciences or engineering. This support allows these scholars to fully concentrate on their studies and to seek out the best research mentors in their chosen fields. PGS Master's awards are valued at $17,300 per annum for one year. PGS Doctoral awards are valued at $21,000 per annum for up to three years. The Government of Canada has recently offered the prestigious Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) program. The CGS program assists in ensuring a reliable supply of highly qualified personnel to meet the needs of Canada's knowledge economy. As of 2008, the Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) will be known as the Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship. CGS Master's awards are valued at $17,500 per annum for one year. CGS Doctoral awards are valued at $35,000 per annum for up to three years. Industrial Postgraduate Scholarships (IPS) provide financial support for highly qualified science and engineering graduates. The support allows them to gain research experience in industry while undertaking advanced studies in Canada. These scholarships are aimed at encouraging scholars to consider research careers in industry where they will be able to contribute to strengthening Canadian innovation.
