Canada Graduate Scholarship - Masters (CGS-M) Program 

NSERC hosts the CGS-M competition for all three agencies: NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR. NSERC is also providing information sessions on applying to the CGS-M.

The information sessions will be hosted as live Q&A WebEx events. They are supported by a series of informational videos available on the NSERC YouTube channel. These videos are intended to completely replace the presentation portion of the NSERC sessions, allowing NSERC staff and applicants to engage in a more in-depth and detailed Q&A session than we would normally have time for. Participants should watch the videos in advance and come to the Q&A session with specific questions in mind. 

Please attend any session that best suits your schedule. Registration is not required.

Scholarship Application Tips

 
 
 

Awards Committees

Please note that we make every effort to update the Awards Committee membership lists below as soon as possible, but the lists are subject to change. 

 

 

 

 

 

Conflict of Interest Policy for Awards Committees

Members of scholarship and award committees shall not review an application if the member may have, or be perceived to have, a bias or motive for or against the applicant (e.g., working or personal relationship with applicant). Upon receipt of applications to be reviewed, the committee member who is conflict shall declare the conflict to the Graduate Awards Officers and refrain from reviewing the application file. The member will assume a non-voting role on the funding decision for that applicant. Selection committee members will speak only to the information contained in the award application package, and not based on knowledge of the applicant external to the contents of the application. Members in conflict will declare such conflict where the applicant’s file is discussed during the committee meeting and refrain from speaking to, or voting on, the application.
