Excellence scholarships

*NB: As of September 2021, a new graduate scholarship framework will be implemented at the University of Ottawa. As such, this scholarship will no longer be available beyond the term of May 2021.  More details with respect to the new admission graduate scholarships offered by the University as of September 2021 will be posted shortly.


Excellence scholarships equivalent to the University of Ottawa tuition fees, up to 10,000$ per year, are awarded to recipients of major external awards (e.g., CIHR, FRQ, NSERC, OGS, SSHRC). They are awarded for each year that the external award is held. For those students who also received an Admission Scholarship, a Graduate Scholarship or an International Scholarship, these will be replaced with the Excellence Scholarship. The Excellence Scholarship does not include a guaranteed matching funding contribution* offered by the academic unit.


The value of the scholarship is equivalent to the tuition fees, up to 10,000$ per year


No deadline

*Matching fund contribution may be given to you in the form of a Soft-Funding Bursary, a Teaching or Research Assistanships, or any other form of contract.
