NEW for 2019 - Canada’s three federal granting agencies, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) have been working together to harmonize the Canada Graduate Scholarships - Doctoral (CGS D) Program. This exercise is driven by the desire to remove barriers, have consistent processes across the three agencies and to simplify the application and adjudication processes. In the first phase of the CGS D harmonization included a new common CGS D landing page, as well as a harmonized timeline and program description.
