Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships

Value: $50,000 per year for 3 years
Student Research Funding
Special Audience: International

Vanier scholars at Royal Roads University pursue doctoral studies in the social sciences and humanities. They are outstanding students from either Canada or around the world, and are recognized as leaders in their fields of research and in their communities.

Royal Roads University is able to nominate one Vanier CGS application to the National competition once every three years. The next earliest opportunity to submit a candidate is November 2021, which is the start of the new 3-year cycle.

In years where RRU's has a nomination allocation available, a short-from competition will be launched in the spring to seek a potential Vanier Scholar. Eligible candidates who have accepted admissions, or are enrolled in year 1 of  RRU's Doctoral program will be emailed the "Call for Applications". Should the selection committee identify a strong candidate amongst applicants in the short-form competition, that one student will receive assistance with the full application.
