To apply for the CGS M scholarships, all applicants must complete and submit an application using the Research Portal https://portal-portail.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/
Applicants should consult the instructions http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Students-Etudiants/PG-CS/CGSM-BESCM_eng.asp when completing their application. In addition, applicants must also complete the Canadian Common CV-CGS—Master’s version as instructed http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Students-Etudiants/PG-CS/CGSM-BESCM_eng.asp This must be uploaded to your application on the Research Portal.
The Research Portal will instruct applicants to select up to five universities 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 1, 2017.
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 (http://www.science.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=en&n=FEE7261A-1).
Up-to-date 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. Applicants are permitted to open their sealed transcripts for the purpose of uploading.
Transcripts must be those provided to you from the university (Registrar’s Office), NOT a copy of your Web transcripts. Transcripts showing current registration must be submitted as well; even if no grades have been issued. For international transcripts ONLY (not including U.S. transcripts); certified true copies are acceptable. These can be obtained from your department. Each page of the transcript(s) must be signed by the department.
At its discretion, the granting agency can request official transcripts before you take up the award or during your award period, for verification purposes.
Information related to the application process can be found at the following link.
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.
Results deadline (date the universities post the competition results using the Research Portal): April 1st of the following calendar year.
