Description

Description

The purpose of CGS M Program is to provide financial support to the scholars with high caliber who are involved in qualified master’s or, in some cases, doctoral programs in Canada. This backing allows these intellectuals to completely concentrate on their studies in their preferred fields.

 

The CGS M Program supports up to 3,000 students every year in all disciplines and is administered mutually by Canada’s three granting agencies: SSHRC, CIHR, and NSERC. The selection procedure and post-award management are carried out at the official level, under the supervision of the three agencies. Students submit their applications to the institute at which they aim to hold their awards using the research portal.

Eligibilities

Eligibilities

To be qualified to apply, the applicant must

 

  • Be a Canadian national or a permanent resident of Canada, as of the date of the application deadline
  • Be registered in, have applied for, or planning to apply for full-time admission to a qualified graduate program at the master’s or doctoral level at a Canadian institution with a CGS M provision
  • Respect the interior deadline to apply for admission for the intended study program alongside contacting the faculty of graduate studies (or its equivalent) at the selected Canadian institution(s) for further comprehensive information
  • Have finished, as of December 31 of the application year
    • either between zero and 12 months of full-time studies (or full-time equivalent) in the program for which the applicant is demanding financial subsidy, which may be one of the following:
      • a master’s program
      • a doctoral program that the applicant is entering without having ever been registered in a master’s program (that is, direct-entry)
      • a joint master’s-doctoral program
      • a master’s program that will transition to a qualified doctoral program, either before or after award activation, with no master’s degree consulted (that is, fast-track)
      • a master’s program for which the degree requirements would be completed before the conclusion of the award, letting the award continue into a qualified doctoral program
    • or somewhere around four and twelve months of full-time study (or full-time equivalent) in a qualified master’s program for which the degree requirements would be completed before activation of the award, letting it be initiated during the first 12 months of the successive doctoral program for which applicant is requesting funding
  • not have formerly held a CGS M
  • have achieved a first-class average in each of the last two completed study years (full-time equivalent), as determined by the host institute,
  • submit a maximum of one scholarship application in each academic year to either SSHRC, CIHR, or NSERC

 

Refer to the Tri-agency research training award holder’s guide for facts about part-time admission.

 

Institutes may, at their will, offer a CGS M award to candidates who have not attained a first-class average.

 

Program of study eligibility

 

A qualified graduate program must have an important research module. An important research module is considered to be unique, independent research that leads to the thesis completion, scholarly publication, performance, major research project, dissertation, recital, and/or exhibit that is merit/expert-reviewed at the official level as a prerequisite for program completion.

 

  • Combined programs with a specialized degree (for example, MBA/Ph.D., MA/MBA MD/Ph.D., DVM/Ph.D., JD/MA, JD/Ph.D.) are qualified, if they have a noteworthy research component, as mentioned above.
  • Clinically oriented study programs such as clinical psychology, are also qualified programs if they have an important research module, as mentioned above.
  • Master’s programs based only on course work are naturally not qualified since they do not contain a noteworthy research module, as mentioned above.

 

Given the precise requirements of various disciplines, institutes are requested to contact a suitable agency for supervision on the eligibility of study programs.

      • a master’s program that will transition to a qualified doctoral program, either before or after award activation, with no master’s degree consulted (that is, fast-track)
      • a master’s program for which the degree requirements would be completed before the conclusion of the award, letting the award continue into a qualified doctoral program
    • or somewhere around four and twelve months of full-time study (or full-time equivalent) in a qualified master’s program for which the degree requirements would be completed before activation of the award, letting it be initiated during the first 12 months of the successive doctoral program for which applicant is requesting funding
  • not have formerly held a CGS M
  • have achieved a first-class average in each of the last two completed study years (full-time equivalent), as determined by the host institute,
  • submit a maximum of one scholarship application in each academic year to either SSHRC, CIHR, or NSERC

 

Refer to the Tri-agency research training award holder’s guide for facts about part-time admission.

 

Institutes may, at their will, offer a CGS M award to candidates who have not attained a first-class average.

 

Program of study eligibility

 

A qualified graduate program must have an important research module. An important research module is considered to be unique, independent research that leads to the thesis completion, scholarly publication, performance, major research project, dissertation, recital, and/or exhibit that is merit/expert-reviewed at the official level as a prerequisite for program completion.

 

  • Combined programs with a specialized degree (for example, MBA/Ph.D., MA/MBA MD/Ph.D., DVM/Ph.D., JD/MA, JD/Ph.D.) are qualified, if they have a noteworthy research component, as mentioned above.
  • Clinically oriented study programs such as clinical psychology, are also qualified programs if they have an important research module, as mentioned above.
  • Master’s programs based only on course work are naturally not qualified since they do not contain a noteworthy research module, as mentioned above.

 

Given the precise requirements of various disciplines, institutes are requested to contact a suitable agency for supervision on the eligibility of study programs.
