Graduate awards

The Graduate Awards Database lists all award opportunities the CGPS oversees. In addition, departments, colleges, and donors from outside the university offer awards throughout the year. Use the form below to find specific awards.

Each entry provides information about the funding opportunity - eligibility criteria, the application deadline and instructions for how to apply. Search by keywords (e.g., Indigenous, SSHRC etc.) to find opportunities. Most awards are open to both international and domestic students.

In addition to these awards, the University supports graduate students through teaching, research, and service fellowships and assistanceships. For these, contact your graduate chair or graduate administrator for details.

Queen Elizabeth II Scholarship

Eligibility

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh announced a $10,000 scholarship during their 1987 visit to Saskatchewan . During their May 2005 visit, the amount of this scholarship was increased to $20,000. The scholarship is to be awarded annually for graduate or post-graduate study of Saskatchewan politics and government at either of Saskatchewan's universities on the basis of academic excellence. The scholarship amount will be awarded to one student or split between equally deserving candidates.

To be considered for The Queen Elizabeth II Scholarship, you must:

  • be a Canadian citizen, landed immigrant, or protected person;
  • reside in Saskatchewan for the duration of their graduate or post-graduate studies. Any research involving out-of-province fieldwork is only permitted by maintaining a principal residence in Saskatchewan;
  • have an undergraduate degree in any discipline (at the time of commencement of the scholarship);
  • have applied for admission or be enrolled in graduate or post-graduate studies for the upcoming academic year related to Saskatchewan politics and government (which includes Crown, Legislature, executive and related institutions) at either the University of Saskatchewan or the University of Regina; and
  • have applied for a thesis or non-thesis (project-based) program. Note – course-based programs are not eligible.

Preference will be given to students conducting STEM-related research (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and supports the Saskatchewan Growth Plan areas of study (i.e., Agriculture, Biotechnology, Energy, Engineering, Environment, Forestry, Manufacturing, Mining, Nuclear Medicine and Science).
