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. This support allows these scholars to fully concentrate on their studies in their chosen fields.
The CGS M Program supports up to 2,500 students annually in all disciplines and is administered jointly by Canada’s three federal 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. Students submit their application to the institution at which they intend to hold their award using the RESEARCH PORTAL. The portal will instruct applicants to select up to five universities where they wish to hold the award.
Applicants should select McMaster University as one of their institutions if: they are currently enrolled in, have applied for or will apply for full time admission at McMaster in an eligible graduate program.
