Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dear graduate advisors and program staff,

Please set an internal deadline for the Spring Graduate Awards Competition and forward the following announcement to your students:

Spring Graduate Awards Competition

A number of criteria-based awards for the 2019/20 academic year are available to current and incoming graduate students. Applicants will apply via their graduate programs with a single application that may be considered for as many of the awards as they are eligible for, taking note of the following important considerations:

  • : To be eligible to receive funding, applicants must meet all the criteria for each award they apply for. Applicants must clearly address their eligibility as specifically to the award criteria as possible.
  • : While award recipients will be selected based on academic merits, priority will be given to eligible candidates who do not already hold significant scholarship funding (e.g., external, 4YF, Affiliated Fellowship, etc.).

Deadline for nominations to G+PS: 4 p.m. on Friday, 24 May 2019. (Applicants: Please check with your graduate program for your department's internal deadline.)
