Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that all trainees have equitable access to research funding and career support. Equity is an integral part of a sustainable research ecosystem as it encourages greater diversity amongst applicants. Studies show that diversity—not just of scientific expertise, but also the people conducting and participating in the research—leads to more creativity and more innovation.

The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (Vanier CGS) program strives to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout the application, review, and selection processes. To better equip all those participating in the Vanier CGS competition (applicants, nominating institutions, referees, reviewers), the Tri-Agencies have curated an important list of the resources to help guide each group.
