Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships [Fully Funded] 2022/2023

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is the administering agency of the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program and is responsible for the payment of awards by the policies and regulations outlined in the Tri-Agency Research Training Award Holder’s Guide.

The agencies reserve the right to interpret these regulations and any conditions applied to individual awards.

The agencies reserve the right to cancel an award if any of these regulations are not followed or if the award holder does not maintain their eligibility.

 Payments made for a period during which the award holder is no longer eligible to receive funds must be reimbursed to the agency. Interest may be charged if the payment is not received by the due date. Learn more

Multiple applications

Eligible candidates may apply to both the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship program and other agency-specific doctoral-level scholarship/fellowships programs (whether to the same or a different federal granting agency) in the same academic year, provided that the research proposed in each application falls within the mandate of the federal granting agency to which the application is submitted. For more information, please refer to Identify an area of research.

Note: since eligibility, evaluation criteria, and competition deadlines are different; applications submitted to Vanier CGS are not considered in agency-specific doctoral award competitions. You must apply to each program individually.

Candidates who are successful in both competitions will have to choose which award to accept.
