Eligibility The University of Manitoba and the Faculty of Graduate Studies offer the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowships (UMGFs). The fellowships are awarded annually to graduate students who have demonstrated intellectual ability and academic accomplishments. The fellowships, valued at $18,000 at the Ph.D. level and at $14,000 at the Masterís level, are offered each year to graduate students who:

(1) are enrolled in or plan to enroll in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba in either the Masterís or Ph.D. program as full-time students. Not including pre-Masterís or Occasional students, Masterís of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Finance (MFin), and Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM). These graduate programs do not meet the eligibility criteria for Tri-Agency graduate student awards;

(2) minimum admission grade point average of 3.00 based on their admission to their current graduate program. Some departments require a higher GPA to be eligible;

(3) show great promise as researchers and as graduate students;

(4) are admitted to, or registered in, a program that is eligible for NSERC, SSHRC, or CIHR graduate student awards.

The UMGFs may be held in part or full, for the first two years of the Masterís program (from the date of admission) and for the first four years of a Ph.D. program (from the date of admission).


To determine length of time spent in a graduate program, two years of part-time study in a graduate program will be deemed equivalent to one year of full-time study at both the Masterís and the Ph.D. level. In the case of a transfer from Masterís to Ph.D. without completion of the Masterís degree, transfer denotes that the course work completed in the Masterís program would normally become part of the Ph.D. program. Therefore, the number of years spent in the Masterís program would be calculated as years spent in the Ph.D. program.

During tenure of the award, recipients must maintain a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0 and cannot receive a grade lower than a C+ (including AX courses).

The UMGF is not tenable with any other scholarship that is of equal or greater monetary value than the awarded yearly UMGF.

The above define minimum conditions of eligibility. Individual faculties are responsible for selecting recipients from amongst the students admitted to, or enrolled in, a program offered by a department or unit within that Faculty.

Value $14,000 for Masters; $18,000 for Ph.D.
