The prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program presents an excellent international study opportunity. If you are an international student interested in being considered for a Vanier CGS, please take the time to review the information below.
About the nomination process
In order to be considered for a Vanier CGS, students must be nominated by an eligible Canadian university with a Vanier CGS program allocation. Please see the Vanier CGS allocations for a list of these universities.
International students are advised to make contact as early as possible with the Canadian university at which they hope to study (see program timeline below). Students should indicate their interest in the Vanier CGS program to departmental faculty (preferably) or the university’s graduate studies office. (Please note that the Vanier-Banting Secretariat do not provide lists of university contacts.)
Missing or tardy original documents, such as official transcripts and letters of recommendation, may cause delays in the university nomination process. Therefore, students should request supporting documents as early as possible. Applications must be complete and without error. Late applications will not be accepted.
Students must comply with university entrance requirements, including language proficiency level. Please consult the university department for further information about these requirements.
