ONLY FULL-TIME Ph.D. STUDENTS who are in the 5th year of their program (for the tenure term of the funding) are eligible. Under the SGS terms of accepting this funding, the recipient of the funding cannot hold Teaching Assistantships, Teaching Fellowships, or Research Assistantships during the period of the funding.  Students who receive TCF are not eligible to receive any subsequent awards from the SGS, including QGA.

Funding will be allocated based on:

i.              the viability of the plan for completing the thesis and degree program within the tenure term of the funding;

ii.            academic merit;

iii.           the financial need of the student; a full-time student in 5th year who is eligible for this funding (i.e., not holding a TA, TF or RA and not exceeding the ten hours per week (average) of work rule for full-time status) is determined by the Department to be in financial need.
