Canada – a global centre of excellence in research and education
The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program attracts and retains world-class doctoral students to Canadian universities by supporting individuals who demonstrate strong leadership skills and a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in health, natural sciences, engineering, humanities and social sciences.
"The Vanier CGS is a sign of academic achievement, but it also comes with high expectations from faculty, which further motivates, and helps drive results.”
The program provides Canadian and international doctoral students with highly prestigious scholarships valued at $50,000 per year for three years.
"The Vanier CGS gave me an inspiring boost and made my overall research experience enriching. It offered an invaluable opportunity to research and network with other scholars."
Students who wish to be considered for this scholarship must be nominated by the Canadian university to which they are applying for doctoral studies.
International students are advised to contact the Canadian university where they plan to study as early as possible. Students should indicate their interest in this scholarship to departmental faculty or to the university's graduate studies office. The scholarships are awarded on the basis of a competitive merit review process.
"Getting support for my studies through the Vanier CGS is a sign that my research is a growing area of interest, and that good ideas, focused efforts and hard work can yield rewards."
