I received the International Graduate Student Entrance Scholarship (IGSES) last year. Will I automatically be considered for the IGSS?
Students are not automatically considered for the IGSS. You must apply for the IGSS in each academic year that you are eligible.

I am planning to transfer from a Master’s to a PhD program, or to apply for a PhD program next year. Should I apply for the IGSS?
If you are planning to transfer from a Master’s to a PhD program, or to apply for a PhD program next year, you are encouraged to submit an IGSS application before the deadline.
