Scholarship Opportunities

There are 10 Academic Excellence Awards available to new Master’s students (entering Year 1 as of Fall 2016) valued $15,000 for one year, and 10 awards for new Doctoral students (entering Year 1 as of Fall 2016) for one  year.  Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada who have achieved a first-class average (equivalent to an A- or better at Queen’s), in each of the last two completed years of study (full-time equivalent), are eligible to be considered for the AEA. 

Prospective new students who have also applied, or who will apply, to NSERC, SSHRC or CIHR, need not make a separate AEA application—we will use their tri-council application to considered them for the AEA. The online application is for prospective new students who are eligible to be considered for the AEA,  but who did not submit an application for the 2016-17 tri council competition.

The online application to our new Academic Excellence Award (AEA) is now available. Details about the award, and a link to the online application to it, can be found on our website here: http://www.queensu.ca/sgs/prospective-students/awards-scholarships/academic-excellence-awards

More details, including the deadlines, are available on the website.
