Three Grenfell Campus graduate students are the recipients of the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master's (CGS M) program.
Lorna Conquergood and Anie Toole, students in the master of fine arts (visual arts), School of Fine Arts, each received $17,500.
Samantha Young, a student in the master of arts (environmental policy), School of Science and the Environment, also received $17,500.
According to the website, the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master's (CGS M) program helps develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies.
The CGS M program provides financial support to high-calibre scholars who are engaged in eligible master's or, in some cases, doctoral programs in Canada. This support allows these scholars to fully concentrate on their studies in their chosen fields.
This year Memorial University's students received a total of $367,500 from the CGS M.
The program supports up to 3,000 students annually in all disciplines and is administered jointly by Canada's three federal agencies: CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC. The selection process and post-award administration are carried out at the institutional level, under the guidance of the three agencies.
In addition to the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master's (CGS M) program, Memorial students received awards from the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship, Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship, Canada Graduate Scholarships—Doctoral, and Canada Graduate Scholarships—Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplements Competition programs, totalling $768,500. The results were posted by Canada's tri-agencies on June 19.
