External Scholarship Deadlines


The Grad Office understands that sometimes students applying to scholarships often struggle in what to include in their own applications.  So, as a courtesy service, the Grad Office has a folder of past successful scholarship proposals for you to look.  If you wish to look at these folders, please stop by the Grad Office (297 BSB) during business hours.  Photocopies and pictures of these samples are not allowed and they may not be removed from the office.

Please send/hand in your transcripts to the Grad Office (297 BSB) a few weeks before the official deadlines so, that the office can calculate grade point averages (GPA) in a timely matter.  This will be greatly appreciated by office staff!

Important Scholarship Deadlines

CIHR Doctoral + OGS: September 29, 2017
NSERC Doctoral + OGS: October 13, 2017
Transcript submission deadline – October 5, 2017
SSHRC Doctoral + OGS: October 17, 2017
CGS-Masters (CIHR, NSERC & SSHRC) + OGS: December 1, 2017

More information can be found on FGS pages at  The Grad Office strongly encourages you to read all the applicable award guides.

If you are applying to an OGS/QEII and one of the Tri-Council awards (CIHR Doctoral, NSERC Doctoral, SSHRC Doctoral, and CGS-Masters awards), submit both together according to your Tri-Council deadline (see below) and complete Part A (Student Profile) of the OGS application form. Your OGS/QEII application will be based on your Tri-Council application. Students do not need a separate set of transcripts and assessment forms for OGS if they are submitting a Tri-Council application.

If you are applying only to an OGS and not to any of one of the Tri-Council awards, complete Part A and Part B of the OGS application form and submit it to the Grad Office (297 BSB), along with transcripts and OGS assessment forms by the applicable deadline determined by your field of research.  International students follow the same deadlines as domestic OGS applicants.


Order transcripts early to avoid any delays!
