Qualifications - Holders of these awards are required to be accepted as a fully-qualified student in a Master's or
Doctoral degree program at the University of Regina.
In Good Standing – Students must be achieving satisfactory performance. An incomplete and/or failing grade from a
previous semester's work will render the student ineligible for support for a minimum of one semester.
Post-Program Maintenance - Students who are, or will be, in post-program maintenance (i.e. have completed all formal
credit hour degree requirements in the program and therefore register in GRST 995AA, AB) are NOT eligible for
scholarships and research awards from the FGSR.
Registered Full-Time - Award recipients are required to be registered full-time in the semester in which the funding is to
be received and, accordingly, are required to register in no less than 6 credit hours of course or thesis work pertaining to
their program during the corresponding semester when there are outstanding unfulfilled requirements (i.e. thesis or course
credit) in their programs. For students having between 3 and 5 credit hours of unfulfilled requirements remaining, this
remainder will define the number of credit hours in which they are obliged to register to qualify for funding.
Registration Date – Award recipients are required to be registered full-time by the 5th day of the first month (January,
May, or September) of the term in which the award is to be paid in order to meet payroll deadlines; payment will be
withheld until the student is registered.
Holders of Major Awards (value of $16,500 or over) - Students who are holding major awards such as national
scholarships, i.e. NSERC, SSHRC or CIHR or equivalent (includes major internal awards) are NOT eligible to receive
funding for an FGSR Scholarship or Research Award during the tenure of their major award. However, such students may
be eligible for an Enhancement Award in the first semester of the tenure of their major award, and to receive an FGSR
Scholarship in the semester directly following the completion of the major award.
Employment - Students holding a GSS may hold employment (on or off-campus) to a maximum of 12 hours per week
during the tenure of the award. Students holding a University Teaching Fellowship (UTF), a Graduate Teaching
Fellowship (GTF) or employed as a Sessional Lecturer, are not eligible to hold an FGSR Scholarship or Research Award
as the hours defined in the corresponding collective agreements for these positions exceeds 12 hours per week.
Number of Awards Per Semester - In a given semester, students are eligible to hold only a single FGSR award. This
includes enhancements. Students are allowed to hold a GTA and GSS in the same semester.
Limit of Graduate Studies Scholarships Per Program: Master’s – five (5); Doctoral – nine (9). The number of awards
tenable at the Master’s level is a maximum of five (5). Students who are studying towards a second Master's degree are
ineligible if they received five semesters of support previously. A maximum of nine (9) awards are available to PhD
students, irrespective of whether they have previously received support as a Master's student.
