Payment of the award

The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) are administered by the Canadian institution at which the doctoral student holds the scholarship. Vanier Scholars should refer to the Tri-Agency Research Training Award Holder's Guide for regulations governing the use of Vanier CGS funds.

Start date

Once notified of the results, Vanier Scholars may take up their Vanier CGS on May 1, 2018, September 1, 2018 or January 1, 2019. The start date chosen must not overlap with any prior federal granting agency funding received and the Vanier scholar must be registered for full-time studies at the nominating Canadian institution as of the Vanier CGS start date.

Change of institution

The Vanier CGS must be taken up at the institution that nominated the scholar for the Vanier CGS. If the Vanier Scholar wishes to study at another Canadian institution, they must decline or terminate the Vanier CGS.
