External Awards, Scholarships, Fellowships, Internships
Students are expected to apply for any awards or scholarships for which they may be eligible. Consult the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website concerning application requirements and deadlines for major award competitions each fall which require university pre-selection.
Awards are remitted to the student in the manner stipulated by the granting agency and/or, if applicable, as noted below.
Since there may be a maximum amount of funds that can be awarded and held by a student, full-time graduate students who accept an award that is not directly administered by Laurier must immediately inform their department chairperson and the dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, in writing. This requirement applies to any awards or assistance offered by any agency or institution.
Scholarships and Awards:
Science's Next Wave - Grants and Funding
COS Database - Funding opportunities
Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR): Master's Training Program
Unless otherwise stipulated by the award granting agency, a student who is successful in winning an external award will have that award applied against the student (tuition) account. Any outstanding payments owed to the University will be deducted at
source before a refund is issued (by direct deposit) for the
balance. Major external scholarships from national (Tri-Council) or provincial (Ontario Graduate Scholarship/Ontario Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology) are paid in instalments, one at each term, starting with the term you selected on your Response Form. The award is applied, along with any other scholarship awarded to you by Laurier, against your student account (tuition).
You must be registered in order to receive your award payment, and the refund will be issued no earlier than the last date for late registration (see the Academic Schedule in the Graduate Calendar for specific dates). That is, your September instalment will be paid in mid September, your January instalment in mid January, etc.
