The Research Portal will instruct applicants to select up to three universities (maximum) where they wish to hold the award. Applicants may select universities on the application where:
• they are currently enrolled in an eligible program of study and wish to pursue their studies; or
• they intend to apply for full-time admission to an eligible program of study if not currently enrolled at a university of their choice.
The deadline for applicants to submit their application on the Research Portal is December 1st, 2021 at 7 pm Central (Winnipeg) time!!!!!
Applicants are asked in the CGS M application to categorize their proposed “field of research” (i.e., health, natural sciences and engineering, social sciences and humanities). Applicants should ensure they are selecting the appropriate Granting Agency:
Up-to-date OFFICIAL transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate studies must be scanned as instructed (see instructions) and uploaded by the applicant in the appropriate section of the application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that ALL official transcripts from each post-secondary institution they have attended have been scanned into the CGS-M application portal. Missing official transcripts may make your application ineligible so please ensure you include transcripts for your entire academic history.
Official transcripts are defined as: transcripts generated by the Registrar’s Office of the issuing institution that arrive to you in an envelope that has been sealed and endorsed (stamped over the back flap) by the issuing office at the institution. Applicants are welcome to open the envelopes of the sealed official transcripts for the purposes of scanning and uploading, however, the envelope should be retained for your records.
For transcripts from Universities in Canada and the United States: official transcripts as defined above must be provided and scanned into your application; please note that one copy of the transcript key/legend from the back of the transcript must be scanned in at the end of the transcript pages.
For students who have transcripts for University work completed at an institution that resides outside of Canada and the United States: for these institutions only – we are permitted to accept certified copies of the International transcripts, as generated by your home department. To obtain these – visit the administrative staff in your home department, and request they print off copies of your International transcripts from your admission file. Each page can be marked as “certified copy from original” and the staff members initials and the date. They should provide them to you in an envelope that has been sealed, and they should sign their signature over the seal so that they arrive to you in that envelope.
**Even if you are a new University of Manitoba student, with the Fall 202 term being your first term of study at the University of Manitoba, an official University of Manitoba transcript is required to show your showing current registration and courses in progress; even if no grades have been issued. Failure to include a transcript showing your current registration will result in your application being deemed ineligible**
WEB COPIES, UNOFFICIAL COPIES, MISSING TRANSCRIPTS, AND TRANSCRIPTS GENERATED PRIOR TO THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AND YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DEEMED INELIGIBLE IF THESE ARE PROVIDED. THIS IS A REGULATION OF THE TRI-AGENCIES – AND THEY HAVE INDICATED THAT APPLICANTS WHO DO NOT PROVIDE OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE DEEMED INELIGIBLE SO ENSURE YOU ARE FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS LAID OUT ABOVE.
Once you have acquired all your official transcripts, they must be scanned in accordance with the following presentation standards and uploaded by the applicant in the appropriate section of the application:

If you have transcripts written in a language other than English or French, you are required to provide a certified translation of the transcripts.
At its discretion, the granting agency can request official transcripts before you take up the award or during your award period, for verification purposes. This is why you must retain all official transcripts, envelopes, and documents related to your CGS-M application
