Master’s Program Graduate Scholarships in Canada 2023

High-caliber scholars enrolled in a Canadian master’s or, in some cases, doctoral programme are supported financially by the Canada Graduate Scholarships Masters Program. These scholars are able to fully focus on their studies in their chosen subjects because to this assistance.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council together run the CGS M programme, which provides funding for up to 3,000 students annually across all disciplines (SSHRC).

Under the direction of the three agencies, the institutional level manages the selection procedure and post-award administration. Students use the Research Portal to submit their application to the organisation where they want to hold their award.

The goal of the Canada Graduate Scholarships – Master’s (CGS M) programme is to support students who have achieved highly in their undergraduate and early graduate studies while also assisting in the development of research capabilities and the training of highly competent professionals.

Degree Level:

In order to be considered for funding, a graduate programme must have a significant research component that results in the production of a thesis, major research project, dissertation, scholarly publication, performance, recital, or exhibit that is merit- or expert-reviewed at the institutional level.

Joint programmes leading to a professional degree (such as MD/PhD, DVM/PhD, JD/MA, JD/PhD, MBA/PhD, and MA/MBA) and therapeutically oriented programmes of study, such as clinical psychology, are acceptable if they incorporate a large autonomous research component, as mentioned above.

The lack of a strong research component, as mentioned above, in master’s programmes that are solely based on coursework often disqualifies them.

Eligible locations

All CGS M awards are only valid in Canadian institutions that qualify.
