To do so, please select “Master’s Level – CGS-M Opt-In” as the submission category and proceed through the application. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will link your CGS-M application to your opt-in form, including reference letters and transcripts submitted for the Tri-Agency CGSM competition. The deadline to Opt-in is December 1st (coinciding with the CGS-M application deadline set by Tri-Agency). If you do not opt-in with your CGS-M application, you must complete a full Harmonized Scholarship Application to be considered for other awards.
