Eligible Canadian institutions receive allocations of Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS M), corresponding to the number of students to whom they can offer an award every year on behalf of each granting agency. These allocations are based on the 2,500 Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS M) awards available each year. There are 400 CGS M awards available from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), 800 from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and 1,300 from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). These allocations have been determined for the 2017-18 competition (application deadline December 1, 2016).
Institutions offer awards according to their CGS M allocations per agency. Allocations are not transferable to a subsequent year nor to projects that fit within the mandate of another agency (see exceptions in the Conditions of the Award section of the program description).
Allocations were calculated using a two-step process. In the first step, the agencies determined which institutions are eligible for a CGS M allocation. In the second step, the agencies calculated the size of the allocation at each eligible institution.
To be eligible for a CGS M allocation, an institution must meet all of the following criteria:
The allocation at each eligible institution is calculated per agency based on each institution’s proportion of the total sum of grant* and award** funding received by all institutions. The research and award funding data collected and used was for fiscal years 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14, as these are the same years used to calculate the most recent CRC allocations.
*Grant funding refers to funds received by applicants’ and co-applicants’ host institutions in Canada for grants programs eligible to be included in the CRC credit calculation (i.e., for the 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14 fiscal years). Consult the Method of Allocation Chairs webpage for further information on the CRC credit calculation.
**Award funding refers to funds received by an institution in Canada for the following programs: CGS M, CGS Doctoral, CGS Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplement, agency-specific doctoral programs, and Vanier CGS.
The allocation distribution will be recalculated for the 2018-19 competition. Going forward, the allocation formula will be used to redistribute allocations to institutions every two years.
The following are the number of awards to be offered by each institution for the 2017-18 competition. CGS M applications cannot be submitted to institutions that do not appear on this list.
