2008 Scholarships and Fellowships Competition Results

The results of NSERC's 2008 Scholarships and Fellowships competition follow. The list is not indexed, so your search depends on the searching capabilities of your Web browser.

The names of those being offered new NSERC Postgraduate Scholarships (PGS), Postdoctoral Fellowships (PDF), or Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) in the natural sciences or engineering for tenure in 2008-2009 are listed.

The list of names is ordered according to the type of award offered:

  • CGS M/PGS M (one-year scholarship for the first or second year of graduate studies);
  • CGS D2/PGS D2 (two-year scholarship tenable during the first five years of doctoral studies);
  • CGS D3/PGS D3 (three-year scholarship tenable during the first five years of doctoral studies); and
  • PDF (two-year postdoctoral fellowship).

Canada Graduate Scholarships are offered to the top-ranked PGS applicants, as recommended by NSERC's Scholarships and Fellowships Selection Committees. Should any of the initial CGS offers be declined, NSERC will offer a CGS to the next most highly ranked applicant awarded a PGS in the same program and discipline grouping. A list of 2008-2009 CGS holders will be posted on this Web site when all the available awards have been taken up.

Since NSERC must adhere to the provisions of the Privacy Act regarding personal information, only basic award information is provided: name of successful applicant, university and department at time of application, area of proposed research, and the proposed location of tenure.

The proposed location of tenure appears as ? (unknown) if this information is not available for any reason (e.g., the applicant did not provide it on the application or specified two or more choices). CGS awards are only tenable in a Canadian university; if an applicant wishes to study abroad, the CGS must be declined.
