NSERC scholarship funding now available for students in the new Master of Science in Information Technology programPosted on: Nov 27, 2020
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council has approved our new Masters of Science in Information Technology (MScIT) program under the Canada Graduate Scholarships – Master funding. This is a great opportunity for students enrolled, or considering enrolling, in our MScIT program to apply and receive this important scholarship.
If you are considering applying, please contact Margie Schoepp in Financial Aid and Awards.
What does this mean for our students?
Students enrolled in this program are eligible to receive $17,500 for one year (non-renewable).
The CGS M program provides financial support to high-calibre scholars who are engaged in eligible master’s or, in some cases, doctoral programs in Canada (refer to Eligibility). This support allows these scholars to fully concentrate on their studies in their chosen fields.
The CGS M program supports up to 3,000 students annually in all disciplines and is administered jointly by Canada’s three granting agencies: CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC. The selection process and post-award administration are carried out at the institutional level, under the guidance of the three agencies.
Who is eligible to apply?
Students who are enrolled, or are planning to enrol in our MScIT program next year may submit an application. Applications to the CGS-M scholarship under the MScIT program are not restricted to CUE students. However, successful applicants must be enrolled in CUE’s MScIT program to receive the scholarship. Once awarded, the scholarship cannot be transferred to another institution.
The deadline is on December 1st. The call for applications for next year should open in the summer of 2021. Results from the December 2020 competition will be released on or after April 1st, 2021.
