Canada Graduate Scholarships - Masters (offered by NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR)
Deadline: Dec. 1 each year

The objective of the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS M) Program is to help develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies. The CGS M Program provide financial support to high caliber scholars who are engaged in eligible Masters or, in some cases, doctoral programs in Canada. The CGS M Program supports 2,500 students annually in all disciplines and is administered jointly by Canada’s three federal granting agencies: CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC. The selection process and post-award administration are carried out at the university level, under the guidance of the three agencies. Students submit their application to the university at which they propose to hold their award via the Research Portal. Qualifying Canadian universities receive a CGS M allocation indicating the number of students to whom they can award scholarships; these allocations are divided by broad fields of study: health, natural sciences and/or engineering and social sciences and/or humanities. For more information, visit the Canada Graduate Scholarships site.
