Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award for Canada Graduate Scholarship – Master’s (CGS-M) 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 – Master’s (CGS-M) Recipients.

The Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award is valued at $5,000 for master's students entering their first year of study. All eligible applicants to the CGS-M who identify Queen's as their destination of choice (host institution) are automatically considered for the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award as well as the Arthur B. McDonald Prize for Academic Excellence, which are valued at $15,000. Note that applicants cannot hold both the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award and Arthur B. McDonald Prize for Academic Excellence and that only CGS-M holders are eligible for the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award. 

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