Tri-Agency Graduate Awards General Information Session

July 27, 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Are you a Canadian or Permanent Resident of Canada planning on applying to graduate school, and wondering about funding? Are you a current graduate student who is unsure what the Tri-Agency awards are, or have some basic questions about how they work? If so, this information session is for you.

This information session will be a basic introduction to the Tri-Agency graduate awards, which includes the Canada Graduate Scholarship – Master’s (CGS-M) program, the Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D) program, and the Vanier. These are some of the largest and most prestigious academic research awards in Canada.

This information session will go over the following:

  • What are the Tri-Agencies (SSHRC, NSERC, and CIHR)?
  • What are the Tri-Agency awards (CGS-M, CGS-D, and Vanier)?
  • Can and should I apply for these awards?
  • When should I apply for these awards?
  • How much time does the application process take? (Hint: more than you think!)
  • What resources are available on campus to help me if I choose to apply?
  • And much more

This session is open to upper-level undergraduate students, incoming and continuing Master’s and Doctoral Students, and anyone else who has general questions about the Tri-Agency awards. Please note that the Tri-Agency awards are not open to students pursuing non-thesis programs.
