Students cannot apply directly for this competition, and must contact their department for application instructions.
Department/Faculty are required to answer all mandatory questions and attach necessary supporting documents. The Graduate Scholarship Committee will make the final decision. Only submit one nomination per Department/Faculty. The nominee will be considered and checked for eligibility for all three scholarships.
Nominations are submitted by the department via GSMS under “Open Competition”.
The FGSR Awards Team will review your nominee’s eligibility and to ensure that each nomination is adjudicated in the award(s) competition for which they are eligible. Offers will be made directly to students from the specific award they are successful in winning (i.e. the final offer will come from the Horowitz award, not the “Open” award).
The two mandatory nominating questions that departments must answer in GSMS are:
1. Please address how this nominee/candidate best meets the Eligibility Criteria for this award
2. Confirm that this nominee/candidate’s Area of Research meets that which is stated in the Terms of Reference
A complete nomination package includes:
1. Open Competition Application Form
2. Research Proposal
4. An unofficial University of Alberta transcript
IMPORTANT: The Department/Faculty must upload each required document separately in GSMS (i.e Do not merge all documents in 1 PDF file to upload).
