Applications are initiated in one of two ways. Either: the student informs the faculty of graduate studies at the selected university of their intent to apply to the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program; or the university initiates the nomination process by contacting the desired candidate.
Applications are prepared by the student and submitted to the university by the nominating university’s internal deadline (set in ResearchNet by the nominating university) using the ResearchNet application system at : https://www.researchnet-recherchenet.ca/rnr16/vwOpprtntyDtls.do?progCd=00005&org=VANIER&language=E

The Vanier-Banting Secretariat performs the selection process. The Vanier-Banting Secretariat presents the recommendations to the Vanier-Banting steering committee. The Vanier-Banting steering committee endorses and approves final decisions for the Vanier CGS program.
Canadian universities must submit all nominations to the Vanier-Banting Secretariat via ResearchNet by the deadline date.
Without exception, the Vanier CGS is tenable only at the eligible Canadian university that submitted the nomination.
