International Graduate Student Scholarship

The Faculty of Graduate Studies offers scholarships to recognize and reward the excellence of international graduate students pursuing Master’s or Ph.D. degrees at the University of Manitoba. The scholarships, valued at up to the international differential tuition fee amount, will be offered to graduate students who:

(1) are international students (i.e., those in Canada on study permits);

(2) are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies in either:

     (a) the second year of a Master’s program with a two-year fee structure;

     (b) the second year of a Ph.D. program with a two-year fee structure;

     (c) the second or third year of a Ph.D. program with a three-year fee
     structure; or

     (d) the first year of a Ph.D. program after completing a Master’s degree at
     the University of Manitoba;

(3) are paying the international student differential tuition fee;

(4) have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 based on their last 60 credit hours (or equivalent) of study or last equivalent two full years;

(5) show great promise as researchers and as graduate students;

(6) are not recipients of external award funding that pays for their tuition.

This scholarship may be held with the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship (UMGF) and other awards offered by the University of Manitoba, but may not be held in conjunction with the International Graduate Student Entrance Scholarship or the International Graduate Student Bursary. Students may be considered for this scholarship in each year of eligible study. Students who are enrolled in a re-registration year and are paying only continuing fees are not eligible for consideration.

The selection committee will have the discretion to determine the number and value of awards offered each year based on available revenue.

Scholarships will be offered until available funds are exhausted. Funding will be confirmed on an annual basis.

This scholarship will be administered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

The Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) and Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate) will name the selection committee for this award.

The Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba has the right to modify the terms of this award if, because of changed conditions, it becomes necessary to do so. Such modification shall conform as closely as possible to the expressed intention of the donor in establishing the award.
