The Vanier Graduate Scholarship program helps Canadian schools attract the best and brightest doctoral students.
Recipients are eligible for up to $50,000 per year for three years during doctoral studies
What is the Vanier scholarship? In 2008, the Canadian government started the scholarship to establish Canada as a “global center of excellence in research and higher learning.”
Applicants must focus their study on social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, engineering, or health.
Up to 167 scholarships are awarded annually and a total of 500 scholarships are active at any time.
When should you apply? Applications are due by November 1, but your process needs to start right now. Begin research nominating institutions now, and plan on contacting them by the end of the summer.
