Awards Information Sessions

Information sessions for the 2021/22 external government funded scholarship competitions, intended for students who are enrolled in or planning to pursue graduate studies, have been impacted by the pandemic and will be offered via alternative means.

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.
