Graduate Scholarship Description
Over the past year, Canada’s three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) formed a Tri-Agency Harmonization Team to redesign the Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) Master’s and Doctoral program.
The redesign and implementation is being done in close consultation with stakeholders to ensure that the new CGS program is delivered as efficiently as possible in support of the training of future generations of researchers. The launch of a common application platform for the CGS-M program is another step towards meeting this objective.
The CGS M Program supports high caliber scholars who are engaged in eligible Masters or, in some cases, doctoral programs in Canada in all research disciplines and is administered jointly by CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC.
The selection process and post-award administration are carried out at the university level, under the guidance of the three agencies. Students submit their application to the university at which they propose to hold their award via the Research Portal.
Scholarship awarded on basis of :
Academic Excellence, Research Potential, Personal Characteristics and Interpersonal Skills
