Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) Program

The Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) Program recognizes academic excellence in graduate studies at the master's and doctoral levels in all disciplines of academic study. The program is jointly supported by funds provided by the Ministry of Training, College and Universities ('ministry') and funds provided by the University of Guelph.  The ministry contributes two-thirds of the value of the award and the university provides one-third.

Important: Students must apply for OGS at the institution where they are/or plan to be registered in a master’s or doctoral program in 2024-25 (S24, F24, W25). An OGS award is not transferrable; it may only be held at the institution at which it was awarded.

At the University of Guelph, applicants to the OGS who enroll or are enrolled in QEII-GSST eligible programs will be automatically considered for that opportunity as well. Successful applicants will receive either an OGS or a QEII-GSST.
