Canada Graduate Scholarships - Doctoral Program


The Canada Graduate Scholarships - Doctoral (CGS D) program supports high-calibre students engaged in doctoral programs in all academic disciplines. This support allows scholars to fully concentrate on their doctoral studies, to seek out the best research mentors in their chosen fields and contribute to the Canadian research ecosystem during and beyond the tenure of their awards. 

NEW The three Canadian federal granting agencies (Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)) have joined forces to harmonize the CGS D program. In doing so, institutions must now evaluate their CIHR's applications. Quotas have been allocated to the institutions, corresponding to the number of CGS D program applications they will be able to submit to each of the three agencies.

Since the CHU Sainte-Justine is a Canadian institution with a quota, the institution is responsible for preselecting applications that will then be submitted to CIHR. Learn more

Amount of funding

The maximum amount per award is $35,000 per year. Award funding is allocated as follows:

  • Stipend: $30,000 per annum
  • Research Allowance: $5,000 per annum

Duration of funding

3 years (non-renewable)


Refer to the CIHR Eligibility Requirements regarding the conditions applicable for individuals and institutions.
