Scholarship awarded on basis of :
Highly qualified science and engineering graduates.
Additional important information
If your academic average is slightly below a first-class academic standing, but you have other qualifications and experience relevant to the research project, the Graduate Studies Office must make a case on your behalf for an exception to this requirement.
To determine if you are eligible for the IPS Program, NSERC will count the number of months of graduate studies completed in the program for which you are requesting funding in an NSERC-supported field. It will count two sessions of part-time graduate study as one session of full-time study at the time of nomination.
In evaluating your eligibility, NSERC will consider all studies counted towards a graduate degree, whether completed at the degree-granting institution or not. You must be eligible as of the date the application is received at NSERC.
If your eligibility for the award could run out while the IPS Agreement is in preparation, the university should forward the incomplete application to NSERC with an explanatory cover letter.
To apply: Contact Or Go Here
Contact the Office of Graduate Studies at your university. It is responsible for submitting nominations to NSERC.
Please note that NSERC expects that the mandatory elements in NSERC’s new Policy on Intellectual Property ( http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/NSERC-CRSNG/Policies-Politiques/ip-pi_eng.asp) will be addressed in the IPS Agreement.
Use the Industrial Postgraduate Scholarships Program Application Checklist ( http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/_doc/Students-Etudiants/IPSChecklist-BESCIListe_eng.pdf ) in consultation with the Scholarship Liaison Officer in Graduate Studies at your university to verify your nomination package.
To be considered eligible for support, you must:
be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada. Applications will also be accepted from qualified foreign candidates;
hold, or expect to hold (at the time you take up the award), a degree in science or engineering from a university whose standing is acceptable to NSERC (if you have a degree in a field other than science or engineering, NSERC may accept your application at its discretion);
have certification from the Dean of Graduate Studies showing that, over the last two completed years of study, you had a first-class academic standing (minimum average of "A-"; see the Note below for more details); and
be pursuing full- or part-time graduate studies in the natural sciences or engineering at an eligible Canadian university in accordance with the regulations in effect at the university.
