Award Resources

There is a new GSMS awards portal that will manage all FGSR administered awards and will replace almost all paper forms. If you are a recipient of an award, scholarship, or a prize, you will be notified via an official email and intray message within GSMS Awards portal. To access your portal, log in to My Awards Portal using your CCID and password.

All recipients of FGSR-administered awards are required to read the Scholarships and Awards Manual carefully as it will answer many frequently asked questions (FAQ's) you might have about your award. If you choose to accept the award, you must adhere to the terms and conditions as identified in the document. Follow the below steps to manage your award, and contact FGSR Award Services at grad.awards@ualberta.ca if you require further clarification.

DISCLAIMER: Only travel awards are open for application at the moment, but all existing awards can be managed through the portal.

All departmental awards are currently available to view through a searchable database.

If you are Department/Faculty Staff and Adjudicator, please see training materials below.

Scholarships and Awards Manual
The Scholarships and Awards Manual contains regulations outlining the management of awards, eligibility, required registration status, payment schedules, etc. The majority of awards administered by the FGSR will be governed solely by the regulations published in this manual. Students accepting an award must comply with these regulations. Once this document has been published to the FGSR website, the official copy becomes the most recent online version; always ensure that you are using the latest version of the material.

Thank your Donor
FGSR is able to provide many funding opportunities to outstanding graduate students because of the generosity of alumni and donors. As an award recipient, you are generally encouraged to send a personal thank you letter to the donor of the award(s) you received. Donor contact information is housed within the Office of Advancement, Stewardship division, and they will contact you, via your UAlberta email account, to let you know how you can express your gratitude. Saying thank-you is one of the most important things that you can do to ensure that our alumni and donors continue to support scholarships, prizes, and awards. Sometimes, the most meaningful part of their giving experience is to know how their contribution has been invested in your educational experience.

You may wait to be contacted by the Office of Advancement, or to assist them with informing the donor, complete theThank You Donor Letter.
