The SOGS 125th Anniversary Scholarship is awarded once per year to four full-time members of the Society of Graduate Students. On the basis of academic merit, research excellence, and community involvement, this scholarship is awarded to full-time Masters and Doctoral students.
Contribution to the academic community is to be defined as publications, academic conference participation and similar achievements. The above criteria being equal between two or more applicants, the Academic Committee may take into account the applicants’ contributions to the university community and the greater community.
The Academic Committee shall award four scholarships of $1500.00 each. Two scholarships will be awarded to Master’s students and two scholarships will be awarded to PhD students.
In order to apply for the scholarship, the applicant must be a member of the society. Additionally, the applicant must be able to demonstrate that he or she receives less in funding from the university and other academic sources (scholarships and bursaries already expected) than he or she pays in tuition fees.
Applications which demonstrate that students receive more in funding than they pay in tuition will not be considered. The applicant will be required to release their financial information from the university to be made available to the Academic Committee.
