Explore Available Scholarships

The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research has created a searchable database of scholarships and awards that are available to our students. Awards are both internal (for U of R students only) and external (open to students across Canada).

Every effort has been made to provide accurate, up-to-date information at the time of posting. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of students to verify program deadlines and requirements. The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research cannot be held responsible for any unintentional errors or omissions, but will appreciate being informed of these, for correction purposes.

Graduate Awards Portal (GAP)

The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research has an online graduate scholarship application system, called the Graduate Awards Portal (GAP)GAP competitions are held at the beginning of each semester with applications accepted:

  • Sept. 1–29
  • Feb. 1–28
  • May 1–30

It is important to review the scholarships offered in each competition as the scholarships are different in each one. GAP allows you to apply for awards online, as well as monitor and track the status of your scholarship application.
