Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award for Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D) Recipients

Queen's Invests in Talent - Funding for Graduate Students

Queen’s University invests in Canada’s most talented graduate students with the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award for Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D) Recipients.

The Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award is valued at $10,000 for doctoral students entering their first year of study. All eligible applicants to the CGS-D who identify Queen's as their destination of choice (host institution) are automatically considered for the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award. Only eligible CGS-D holders will receive the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award.

All eligible applicants to the CGS-D are also automatically considered for the Arthur B. McDonald Prize for Academic Excellence, which are valued at $30,000. Note that students cannot hold both the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award and Arthur B. McDonald Prize for Academic Excellence.  Also note recipients of the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship are not eligible for the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award or the Arthur B. McDonald Prize for Academic Excellence.

These awards add to an already impressive $28 Million in merit-based Queen’s funding available to graduate students each year.
