GPS Student Funding Information - CGSM

The Research Portal will instruct applicants to select up to three institutions where they intend to hold the award. Applicants must only select institutions where:

  • They are currently admitted or enrolled full-time in an eligible program of study and intend to pursue their studies; or
  • Applied for full-time admission to an eligible program of study by the deadline set for their intended graduate program.

Important Notes:

  • Past experience has shown that many applications not submitted in time were missing the required reference assessments. A tutorial video for Canada Graduate Scholarships Master’s Instructions for Completing a Reference Assessment Form is available. You are encouraged to share this link with your referees, so that their assessments are linked to the application well in advance of the deadline.
  • GPS requires all transcripts* from every university-level academic institution attended. They should be listed on the student's Canadian Common CV (CCV) and be "official" and must include transcripts to support any transfer credits.
  • For the Fall 2020 competition, unofficial transcripts will be exceptionally accepted if official transcripts cannot be obtained.
  • Incomplete or incorrect applications and late recommendations will not be accepted and will not be forwarded to the GPS Central Selection Committee.
