CANADA GRADUATE FUNDING ELIGIBILITY

Scholars are selected on the following criteria:

-->
  •  Canadian students can apply for these endowments.
  • Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada;
  • Be enrolled in, have applied for, or will apply for full-time admission* to an eligible graduate program at the masters or doctoral level at a Canadian institution with a CGS M allocation.
  • Respect the internal deadline to apply for admission for your intended program of study. Contact the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or its equivalent) at the selected Canadian institution(s) for more detailed information.
  • Have completed, as of December 31 of the year of application:
    • between zero and 12 months of full-time studies (or full-time equivalent) in the program for which you are requesting funding, which may be:
      • a master’s program;
      • a doctoral program that you are entering without having ever been enrolled in a master’s program (i.e., direct-entry);
      • a combined masters doctoral program;
      • a master’s program that will transition to an eligible doctoral program, either before or after award activation, with no master’s degree conferred (i.e., fast-track); or
      • a master’s program for which the degree requirements will be completed before the end of the award, allowing the award to continue into an eligible doctoral program; or
    • between four and 12 months of full-time study (or full-time equivalent) in a master’s program for which the degree requirements will be completed before activation of the award, allowing it to be activated during the subsequent doctoral program for which you are requesting funding (CIHR and NSERC only);
    • not have previously held a CGS M. For CIHR and NSERC, scholarship support for graduate studies (masters and doctoral) is limited to a lifetime maximum of four years (48 months) of full-time equivalency. If you have received the maximum support toward your graduate-level studies by any of the three federal granting agencies, you may not be eligible to apply for a CGS M;
    • have achieved a first-class average**, as determined by the host institution, in each of the last two completed years of study (full-time equivalent);
    • submit a maximum of one application per academic year to either CIHR, NSERC or SSHRC (the Research Portal will allow the application to be submitted to up to three institutions – refer to Application procedures).

    *Refer to the Tri-Agency Research Training Award Holder’s Guide for details regarding part-time admission.
    **Institutions may, at their discretion, offer a CGS M award to applicants who have not obtained a first-class average.

  • An eligible graduate program must have a significant research component. A significant research component is considered to be original, autonomous research that leads to the completion of a thesis, major research project, dissertation, scholarly publication, performance, recital and/or exhibit that is merit/expert-reviewed at the institutional level as a requirement for completion of the program.
  • Joint programs with a professional degree (e.g., MD/PhD, DVM/PhD, JD/MA, JD/PhD, MBA/PhD, MA/MBA) are eligible if they have a significant research component, as described above.
  • Clinically-oriented programs of study, including clinical psychology, are also eligible programs if they have a significant research component, as described above.
  • Master’s programs that are based only on course work are typically not eligible since they do not include a significant research component.
  • Given the specific requirements of certain disciplines, institutions are invited to contact the appropriate agency for guidance on the eligibility of programs of study.
  • For some institutions, the selection process is carried out at the departmental level; therefore, it is important that the department you select in your application be the same as the department to which you will apply for admission. Otherwise, your application might not be considered. Contact the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or its equivalent) at the selected Canadian institution(s) for more detailed information.
