Applicants wishing to apply for the 2021-2022 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship Competition must first complete a Vanier Preliminary Assessment package. Students must:
1. Verify eligibility as stated above under “Eligibility.”
2. Notify your Department of intention to apply for Vanier competition, and determine departmental deadline for submission of application.
3. Complete the Vanier Preliminary Assessment package
and submit to the department by departmental deadline date. FGSR will not accept packages submitted directly by applicants. Ensure inclusion of all required attachments in stipulated order.
4. One Letter of Reference to Support Application for Graduate Awards Form
must be completed and signed by each applicant’s current graduate supervisor (or equivalent). Additional pages attached with the form will not be assessed by the Graduate Scholarship Committee and will be redacted. Applicant must advise his/her referee to submit the required form directly to applicant's home department.
*The completion and submission of the Vanier Preliminary Assessment Package is a mandatory component for all students wishing to be considered for the Vanier competition. The purpose of this package is to identify outstanding Vanier applicants. Packages will be reviewed by members of the FGSR Graduate Scholarship Committee (GSC), and students selected by the committee will proceed to the next level of completing the full application package. Students (and their departments) will be advised by early September of committee decisions. Please do not complete a full Vanier application package unless you are directed to do so by FGSR.
**Applicants who fail to submit the Preliminary Assessment Package by the departmental deadline date will not be considered for the Vanier competition. As well, applicants who circumvent the Preliminary Assessment process and proceed to complete a full Vanier application will be automatically rejected.
